On Giving Tuesday, Dana Neas, Joe Dreyer, and Greg Poehlmann presented a check to Elmwood Park Zoo’s Jen Conti, Development Director, Elisa Tyler, Manager of Education Engagement with Hoo-Houdini, the Eastern Screech Owl. 44 leadership made the visit and donation to the Trail of the Jaguar exhibit at the Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown, PA. The donations are earmarked for the Zoo’s PAWS Membership (Providing Access to Wildlife and the Sciences). Local families with financial insecurity will have an opportunity to apply for and obtain free family membership to the zoo.
