It was a beautiful Monday morning when Villagers arrived for a tour of the Great Ape House at the National Zoo. Jane Scholz, a Village member, is a docent at the zoo and she held Village participants in thrall with information on the habitats, family arrangements, food gathering in the wild, sex lives (!), and other information related to the gorillas and orangutans including stories about her personal observations.
It was a fascinating and informative tour. Jane has offered to lead a tour of the elephant house in the Fall of 2014 when three new elephants have arrived. Hope many Villagers can join us – we guarantee you will enjoy the experience.
