News Briefs The Charles Paddock Zoo GoesGREEN
The Zoo team challenges you to make chang-es of your own at home and in your busi-nesses. By implementing just these simple ideas we have made a signi-cant difference. If the residents of Atascadero all made just a small ef-fort, we could be a leading community toward conservation and the green effort.
The Zoo team also decided to step up our recycling program. In addition to curb-
The City of Atascaderos very own Charles Paddock Zoo has sever-al conservation projects to be proud of. When we stopped to count how many trash bags we went through in a day, we were stunned. So, the Zoo team decided to make a change. We had several buckets donat-ed by helpful friends of the Zoo and dumped our old ways. Now, you might see zookeepers car-rying buckets of trash instead of trash bags. We will save an average of 4,000 trash bags ev-ery year from our local landthese buckets and saying no to trash bags.ll just by reusing CR tion Value (CRV). We were pleasantly programs...bringing in their CRV recycling from home, critical conservationsurprised when Zoo staff members began but were even more excited to see so many other City staff members getting on board. The money that we get back from CRV recycling will go directly toward critical conservation programs as our way of giving support to other worth-while organizations. So, a huge thanks goes out to everyone that has supported this new project!
Visitors to the Zoo have already begun to comment on small changes in and around the Zoo. In an effort to do our part for water and energy conservation in California during this crucial time, we have made a few adjustments. Periodically, you may see that our front entrance pond is drained and the pump system is turned off, our Flamingo exhibit waterspout is turned off and our Serval waterfall is turned off. While this may not be as pleasing to the visitors, we felt that it was our responsi- bility to join in the effort. You may see other water features running, this is to ensure clean and fresh water to certain animals. So, next time you see a water feature turned off in an exhibit, dont be dis- a p p o i n t e d , be proud of the City of Atascadero, the Charles P a d d o c k Zoo, and yourself. By visiting the Zoo you have h e l p e d us to make a better effort toward conservation!

If you are able to attend the Day of the Oak event, you will learn the basics of na-tive tree planting and much more. Keep in mind that oak trees must be planted in suitable soils at locations that meet their growth re-quirements. Seedlings need shelter from the hot summer sun; however, too much shade can also be damaging. Most trees re-quire wire mesh devices to protect roots from gophers and other burrowing wild-life. Above-ground cages or seedling protectors are necessary until plants grow tall enough to discourage deer and cattle grazing. In-sect pests and weeds pres-ent further problems. Of course, planted trees need adequate water in therst year as they become estab-lished. It is always a good idea to mark the seedling locations and return peri-odically with water during therst year or two to en-sure success. For more information, or to volunteer, please refer to ANTA at atascadero-nativetree.org web site, call 461-7610, or email the Citys consulting woodland advisor, Tom Gaman, at tgaman@forestdata.com.
