Last June Pat McGrath approached Rick Kelley from the HIPS Zoo Crew about donating cycads to the Panaewa Zoo in memory of his wife Kristin. When Rick showed up to collect the plants in his truck, he wasn't prepared for the size of the plants. Rick said that Pat laughed and had his guys load them into one of his trucks.
Rick met with Pam Mizuno and the rest of the HIPS Zoo Crew to locate a suitable location for the new garden. Here is the proposed site:
