The Sedgwick County Zoo is scheduled to open its new elephant exhibit on May 27, and steps are being taken every day to prepare for the big day. Today, the Zoo announced the official name for the exhibit, which will be dedicated as The Reed Family Elephants of the Zambezi River Valley.
The exhibit’s dedication recognizes the efforts of the Sedgwick County Zoo’s Executive Director, Mark C. Reed and his family.
In addition, the Sedgwick County Zoo would like to recognize the donors who have made this exhibit possible. Among them are citizens of Sedgwick County, Spirit AeroSystems, Ernest G. and Ellen E. Briggs Estate and The Downing Foundation.
