WHY     Improve exhibits (tba), then meet cute and friendly
        animals we helped.

        The Franklin Park Zoo is a community resource 
        and recreation center managed by the nonprofit
        Zoo New England. The Zoo is seriously under-
        staffed and under-funded, so needs help making
        its children's zoo landscaping more inviting to the
        public. Volunteers must be age 12 or older and
        be able to lift 15 lbs (although lifting will
        not necessarily be required). PMD volunteers
        have assisted the Zoo every year since 1993.
        Includes free admission (usually $17/adult) and
        option to spend five hours exploring the zoo.

HOW     We need 15 volunteers* so will accept sign ups
        on a first come, first served basis.
        Register by 5/30 at

        Incomplete submissions cannot be honored.
        Individuals may only sign up themselves
        (and may not reserve spaces for others).
        Participation is required for the entire
        project time span.

WHO     People Making a Difference (PMD) is a nonprofit
        organization that promotes informed and
        responsible volunteerism by involving people

        local needs and by assisting companies
        and charities in building successful community
        involvement programs that:
      * Produce appreciable results while
        conserving recipients' limited resources,
      * Educate volunteers about broader issues,
      * Bring people together to make a difference.

"The one process now going on that will take millions of years
 to correct is the loss of genetic and species diversity by 
 the destruction of natural habitats. This is the folly our 
 descendants are least likely to forgive."  -E.O. Wilson
