Welcome to Herb Malzacher's CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. Herb is a remarkable man who had a long career as a zoo keeper at Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison. There he trained the elephants to perform various "tricks" that were also useful in managing the elephant's health. Herb was also a wonderful gardener and decorator using his knowledge of plants. Herb and his wife, Helen, have been married over 50 years. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
