Head Outdoors for National Public Lands Day in the Tennessee River Valley
Hohenwald, in Lewis County, Tenn., is located about eight miles west of the Natchez Trace Parkway. The third largest animal trophy mount collection in North America is located at the Lewis County Museum of Natural History in downtown Hohenwald. Hohenwald is also the home of The Elephant Sanctuary, the largest natural-habitat sanctuary for elephants in the United States. The Elephant Discover Center features indoor self-guided exhibits, an outdoor classroom and live video-feeds from The Elephant sanctuary habitats. It should be noted The Elephant's habitats are closed to the public. All elephants reside within The Sanctuary's 2,700 acres of habitat nearby, retired from public view.
