VOLUNTEERS Summertime Helping Hands Humana Volunteers $700 in plants requires lots of planting help! Thanks to the Humana Financial Operations/Commercial Team of volunteers who assisted the Zoo’s horticulture staff with getting $700 worth of plants in place on the green HerpAquarium roof! Additional groups from Humana also used their green talents to help us get ready for the opening of the Butterflies n’ Blooms exhibit this spring: Humana’s PPI/Post Pay Audit Team, CCM Provider Support Services Team, and Medicare EDT Enrollment Team. Mercy Academy Humana didn’t supply our only volunteers this season who have green thumbs. Thank you Mercy Academy freshman for assisting our horticulture department again this year with mulching, planting, clean up and more! Other groups that helped the Zoo (March through June 2018) • Greek Life – Carroll University – Waukesha, Wisconsin • CVCA, Cardiac Care for Pets • The Nielsen Company Thank you to all our volunteers for your support — you truly are the best! Louisville Zoo Youth Board Thanks to the 235 teens who gave their precious gift of time this summer to volunteer at the Zoo.
