Primates More Comfortable at the Folsom Zoo Thanks to La-Z-Boy Owners

Primates More Comfortable at the  Folsom Zoo Thanks to La-Z-Boy Owners

Two small primates named Darwin and Wallace will spend their days a little more comfortably thanks to Jim and Liz Reego, owners of the La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries.  The Reegos, whose daughter Grace volunteered at the Zoo this past summer, recently donated $2,500 to the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary to provide a more safe and enriching living space for the adorable macaques.  

"Grace came home after her shift at the Zoo and told us about Wallace who suffers from epilepsy and often falls suddenly," said Liz Reego, "We all decided that we wanted to help him have a more comfortable and safe life.  Since we don't make recliners quite that small, we asked the Zoo what could be done."

The upgrades will include demolishing old man-made rocks, adding sand for them to play in as well as installing more play and climbing structures for both macaques, who have been at the zoo for a long time, to enjoy.

The Chickens of Sacramento Valley & A Giveaway!

One thing I find most gardeners love? Animals ... cats, dogs, goats, squirrels, ferrets, bunnies, birds. But, while we love our dogs and cats, it seems the chicken is the up and coming fancy pet of the urban gardener!
