along the riverbanks
I love my zoo. And yes, I like to consider it my zoo. Columbia as a city doesn’t always have tons to brag about but the Riverbanks Zoo is a little gem of ours that we are always so proud of. Recently it was ranked the 4th best zoo in the country (by who and reasons why I haven’t a clue) . They do an excellent job of outreach and education and are at the forefront of many studies in the realm of breeding and rearing with endangered animals. A few Sundays ago I spent the day taking my little niece out and about to enjoy the sights and took note that inspiration abounds from daily musings if you pay attention.
