This year’s Around the World celebration offers more than ever before, because it’s the first weekend that Tembo Trail, the Zoo’s innovative new elephant exhibit, opens. Tembo Trail is made possible by the 2006 Lucas County capital levy voters, along with contributors to the Zoo’s capital campaign. Updates about Tembo Trail’s Grand Opening Weekend, sponsored by The Andersons, are available at toledozoo.org/tembotrail.
