The Suburban Acres Civic League is holding the quarterly Adopt-a-Spot event. Neighbors will gather to clean up litter around Suburban Park Elementary School and Caton Park, and along Thole Street to the Tinee Giant.
Bring your friends and family to meet neighbors and help for about an hour to keep our community one of the best (and greenest) in Norfolk!
The minutes and notes from the August 2019 are now available. Go to the meeting minutes area of our site to check them out!
Guest speaker for the meeting was Greg Bockheim from the Norfolk Zoo.
Mr. Bockheim provided an interesting talk on the zoo’s programs related to education, community outreach, and conservation and breeding of at-risk species from around the world. The Virginia Zoo hosts about 500,000 visitors a year and is the only zoo in Virginia that is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. Mr. Bockheim ended his talk with a “pop quiz” and gave stuffed animals to the winners!
