We’re In the Pink on August 4 on Z-TV

Tune into Z-TV Wednesday, August 4, at 7 pm, for a special episode on Huntley Meadows Park and its summer visitors, the Roseate Spoonbills. Usually found in southern climes such as Texas and Florida, the first spoonbill arrived at Huntley Meadows Park in late June, much to the delight of the park’s ardent photographers. We’ll chat with some of those photographers, including Zebra’s Kelly MacConomy, along with our special guest, Huntley Meadows Park Manager Karen Sheffield. Join us!

You can always view all of our Z-TV episodes on the Zebra Press Facebook page (we’ve amassed quite the library!) and on our YouTube channel. Do you have a Good News story to share on Z-TV? We’d love to hear from you! Let us know if you’d like to sponsor Z-TV for your business. Email [email protected], and be sure to include Z-TV in the subject line.
