I heard a most amazing story on WBUR last week about elephants exercising their brains with toys created by students at the Mass College of Art. I have to share it with you--click here.
It's amazing how closely related humans and elephants are in their psychological needs! It may be worth your while to plan at trip to the Buttonwood Park Zoo in New Bedford, MA to see the playful elephants in action.
The Franklin Park Zoo in Boston may not have elephants, but they have lots of other fascinating creatures for you to learn about. Did you know that we have passes to Zoo New England of which the Franklin Park Zoo is a part? The passes come to us courtesy of the Friends of the Library of Windham. The funds for zoo and museum passes are raised by events such as the annual Strawberry Festival and Book Sale, which is being held this Saturday at Windham High School. You don't want to miss it!
