I've been a volunteer at the Hogle Zoo for more than seven years and have had the opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at the zoo. So when I heard there will be a bond on the ballot this November (Proposition #2) to help renew our zoo, I knew it would be a good thing for both the zoo and its visitors.

I was especially excited to hear that all of the bond money will go to things like building new homes for animals and animal care. The Hogle Zoo has been educating and entertaining the kids in our community for 77 years. Now is the time for us to give a little back.
