Jon Lemerond, one of our Wisconsin hosts, has arranged a very special treat for NADWCon attendees: Zoo Keeper, Mary Schmidt, will speak with our group about the Orangutans at the Henry Vilas Zoo. They will close the Orangutan facility to the public so the group will have exclusive access to the building during this time.
