What's growing on at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo? We learned how Lomax and her staff of 8 locate and collect "browse" (green) materials for the zoo animals to eat, how trees are selected and trimmed to simulate the animals' native habitats, how very specific breeding programs are managed (birth control for the female gorillas!), and a number of other features about the animals and habitats that an unguided tour of the zoo would never reveal. A gorgeous fall day and an excellent field trip!​​
