White Oak Conservation Center is presenting a series of Lunch and Learn Safaris and on June 11, 2011, the lunch topic is The Giraffe.
Nassau County, FL – These Safaris are your chance to visit White Oak and learn about different species of animals, while enjoying lunch in the field! Each month we will focus on a different species or aspect of WOCC, including: giraffe, cheetah, rhinoceros, avian and ASB/Research.
You will enjoy a trolley ride to the animal area, an educational experience about the animal, the opportunity to take photographs and see the animals up close, and when you leave, you will receive a commemorative photograph of that day’s species!
Each Safari will have time available for you to ask our keepers and staff questions about the species.
$75 per person for non-members, $50 per person for members (Friends level and up only)
This includes lunch, animal experience, and souvenir. (Friends level and up only)
