Join us on Friday, March 1, for an in-person evening event for educators celebrating our newest temporary exhibit: The Secret World of Elephants.

The evening will feature a reception with drinks and snacks, followed by a talk from Curator Ross MacPhee, Ph.D. This exclusive event is an opportunity for teachers to view the exhibition, network with other educators, and learn how to use the new space with their students.

The Secret World of Elephants reveals new science about both ancient and modern elephants, including elephants’ extraordinary minds and senses, why they’re essential to the health of their ecosystems, and inspiring efforts to overcome threats to their survival.

This is a free event for K-12 teachers. One hour of CTLE credit is available.
