Catherine Green, 66, a resident of Clark Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Clark, New Jersey, had her wish to visit the Bronx Zoo granted, thanks to Our New Jersey chapter.  Catherine’s passion is spending time with horses and other animals. As a teenager, she worked with and rode horses. One of her favorite things to do now is drawing animals from photographs.  Catherine was nominated by the administrator of her facility, Gary Santo who wrote that she is a very special resident who is kind and loving to all who meet her. Before moving into the facility, Catherine was very involved in her church, Holy Trinity, and worked in the rectory there.  Her wish came true on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 when she visited the Bronx Zoo with her former neighbor and volunteer at her facility, Joan Brennan.
