Columbus Zoo – August 2007

by Maureen McCabe on August 1, 2007

BonoboI think we may go to the Zoo this weekend.  I hated the zoo as a kid.  It was hot and smelly.  “The Zoo” for me growing up was the Milwaukee County Zoo which was at that time a new, very clean modern zoo, so I don’t think it was smelly as zoos go. Or as zoos went.  I think I was just a fussy kid when it came to smells. 

Animals smelled to me.  

We also went to the zoos in Chicago.  The Lincoln Park Zoo and the Brookfield Zoo. I have been to the Wild Animal Park in San Diego but never the San Diego zoo.  I have been to zoos in Madison Wisconsin and Wilmington Delaware.     

I have probably been to the Columbus Zoo more than any other zoo because I have outgrown my fussy nose as an adult, or maybe the Columbus Zoo does not smell like animals.

August Green Gardening Tips from Habitat Hollow at The Columbus Zoo

Continue to provide water for wildlife
Deadhead perennials and annuals when flowers fade to provide a continued nectar source
Trim hedges and place clippings on compost pile
When mowing leave the old gas mower behind and try a rotary mower… it’s quieter and cleaner for the environment
Try wildlife safe deterrents to save your garden from hungry wildlife
Plant a moth garden for night time visitors”

Some August events at the Columbus Zoo according to another calendar:

The home page of the zoo site says: “See the rare white alligator…..” but it is not yet linked to any info about the rare white alligator. 

I wonder how alligators smell…

It looks like you have a fairly stable market in Columbus Ohio. We do as well although our inventory seems to be building more than the inventory in Ohio.

We are in a buyers market here but most sellers still have not accepted that fact!

I wonder if this comment was supposed to be on one of the RE entries. No matter. Our inventory is pretty high in some areas. Most of Central Ohio is a buyers market, there are pockets that are doing better.

The local paper identified three markets as having “prices slide” recently but at least two of the three are at a point that prices should start going up again soon because inventories are getting low. That could change though of course.

There are suburbs / areas with 20 months supply of inventory in our Columbus Ohio market. Thanks for the comment Wayne.
