  11. 11. Whoknew? continued from previous page the saying goes. For those that have spent time in the natural parts of South Florida, these stories are in part due to the massive impact of 6 million humans on a very wild natural environment. With a staff of over 60, hundreds of volunteers, and over 800 animals on the premises each day; this is a very busy place. And everyone takes their work very seriously. The center is part hospital, rehabilitation center, orphanage, and adoption center so a lot is going on. The pelicans are recuperating. The osprey tests his wings in a huge aviary built for large birds of prey. Motherless baby parrots are hand-fed each hour by volunteers. And this is all in the first 10 minutes of the tour. ducks, chickens, sheep, pot-belly pigs, squirrels, snakes, deer; the list of animals seems almost endless. What were the most unusual animals? “A buffalo calf, monitor lizard, and bald eagles” came to mind for Sherry Schlueter, the center’s executive director. As a teenager, Sherry served as one the agency’s first volunteers back in the late ‘60’s. The striking part of the center is the volume. Many long-time residents are likely unaware that so many wild animals are treated and released from this quiet oasis in the heart of such a busy urban area. JuNE 2011 11 EAST-MAg.CoM

Not so, at Le Café de Paris on Las Olas Boulevard where they are still serving up some table-side classics. On a recent late night stroll down the boulevard, we stopped in for dessert and enjoyed some classic cherries jubilee. We planned on being good and only ordering coffee but when we saw the cherries jubilee ($15) prepared table- side, we just had to splurge.
