World Elephant Day celebrated with Open House
The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee invites the public to join in celebrating World Elephant Day with the grand opening of The Sanctuary’s Outdoor Classroom in Hohenwald from 10:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Saturday, August 12, 2017.
Neighbors and friends of The Elephant Sanctuary are also invited to join staff for a sneak preview of The Outdoor Classroom Friday night, August 11 from 5-7 p.m.
This celebration will be an opportunity for friends and families to meet and interact with The Sanctuary’s elephant caregivers and help make special enrichment treats for the elephants while touring The Elephant Discovery Center’s new Outdoor Classroom. The elephants at The Sanctuary are retired from public exhibition, therefore there will be no elephants at this event.
