Visit from the Elephant Sanctuary!
Learn all about elephants and their journeys to the Elephant Sanctuary (www.elephants.com) in Hohenwald, Tennessee near Nashville, from staff member Todd Montgomery. This non-profit refuge for old, sick, or needy elephants who have been retired from zoos and circuses, is the nation’s largest natural habitat developed specifically to meet the needs of endangered elephants. The more than 2700 acres provide protected living space for Asian and African elephants. Montgomery will tell stories about elephants living there through photos, videos, and stories. He will bring elephant artifacts to touch and see. Participants will make an elephant puppet to take home.
Reservations in advance required because of limited space. Ages 5 and up. No charge. Registration can be done online, in-store, or by phone.
