Zoe Hamblin’s favorite place at the Toledo Zoo is somewhere full of her favorite hue.
“I like to go to the greenhouse because it’s really warm in there,” the 16-year-old said. “And green is my favorite color.”
The 16-year-old from Whitehouse is one of a record-breaking 46 teenagers with varying disabilities participating this year in the zoo’s Advocates for Disabilities and Partners Team, a division within the Zoo Teens volunteer program. ADaPT pairs individuals with disabilities, both physical and intellectual, with other Zoo Teen members as they complete volunteer tasks together.
