Apprentice Campus Spruce Up Day on March 31st

On Monday afternoon, March 31st, ten stalwart volunteers successfully tackled the job of sprucing up the Apprentice campus.

We managed to move 8 cubic yards of mulch from the front driveway to the back trail, prune the shrubs and trees, remove weeds, and plant new milkweeds and other plants. Also the wooden Monarch butterfly gracing the front porch was repainted by Scharlene Fox, restoring it to its regal splendor!

Our fearless leader in this entire endeavor was Stephanie Wheatley, ably assisted by Penny Weiss, Julie Meaux, Patrice Rodriguez, Anne Proano, John Barone, Tim Johnson, Scharlene Fox, Justin Fox, and Larry Kornegay.

Thanks to all our volunteers for a job very well done!

Discovery Garden - Zoo Maintenance Crew work day, Thursday April 3

After a wet and zoggy 4 months, the Zoo Maintenance Crew decided to brave the elements and re-visit the Discovery Garden at the Houston Zoo.

With shovels, rakes, pruning shears and hoes five brave Movers and Shapers coaxed the garden back into order. Fresh mulch was spread, homes were found for new plants and older plants were lovingly placed in new beds! Weeds were pulled from pathways and slime was extracted from the pond!

Justin and Scharlene Fox, Penny Weiss, Patrice Rodriguez and Stephanie Wheatley made up the Zoo Crew volunteers on this outing!
We hope to make one more maintenance visit to the Discovery Garden before the end of the school year. If you love playing in the dirt, please won't you join us on our next work day. We'd love to see you!
