Friday on Lake Effect: MKE County Zoo's Large Animal Curator, Family Recipes, Dragon Boat Festival

Friday on Lake Effect:

We speak with the Milwaukee County Zoo’s curator of large animals ahead of World Elephant Day on Monday. Then, a Milwaukee Magazine article urges people to get out of town and check out some nearby destinations - including towns on Lake Michigan. We begin a new series called Family Recipes, and the organizers of Milwaukee’s Dragon Boat Festival explain why they began the tradition here.
