Master Gardener Larry Urbaniak who has volunteered at the Brookfield Zoo's Children's garden for a number of years needs some items donated for garden crafts. Here is the list: jewelry, egg cartons, styrofoam trays, shoe boxes, nylons, yarn, ribbon, cardboard rolls from toilet paper, paper towels, gift wrap and yogurt containers.
