*3/15 The Audubon Zoo invited RUBARB to Earthfest. We had a table highlighting what it is we do and brought 6 kids to participate and roam around the zoo for the day.
*3/10 Books on Wheels, from Richmond, VA, brought free books and bike repair to RUBARB! www.booksonwheels.com
*3/1 the Audubon Zoo's Zoomobile visited us with some small creatures from the zoo... a hedgehog, rat, chicken, turtle and snake were made available for us to look at and touch. we learned a lot about these animals and got to examine some other items they brought-- a snakeskin, porcupine quills, bones, furs and even an elephant's tail! Thanks Zoomobile for bringing the zoo to us!
*Pedalers for Peace, a college group from Minnesota, will be coming to NOLA for spring break and riding bikes to Mississippi. They will acquire 14 bikes from RUBARB, which volunteers have been working on diligently.
*RUBARB was awarded a First Book grant!... they will be sending us books to distribute to kids so they can start little libraries in their homes.
