I’m John Walczak, Director of your Louisville Zoo.
Here at the Zoo, we’re waving goodbye to an exciting summer and
gearing up for a fun-filled fall. I’ll be your guide through this issue of
Trunkline magazine, providing insights on the great things happening
at your Zoo this autumn, revealing some behind-the-scenes information you’ll only see here and sharing fun extra facts about your Louisville Zoo and conservation. Keep an eye out for the “Inside Your Zoo”
box — it’s filled with lots of great info I have to share with you.
