ST. LOUIS ZOO HIGHLIGHTS: A small group of members visited the zoo for the horticultural tour.  Tony, our guide, took us on an amazing walking tour of the Rivers Edge Exhibit.  There was so much to see!  The Zoo is full of wonderful blooming bushes and flowers this time of year. The botanical crew does an outstanding job of keeping the zoo beautiful.  It is worth a trip every season to see all the plants in bloom and their seasonal interest.  Of course the animals are great also!  Plan a visit soon!
