Hackensack Elks take Boys and Girls Club to the Bronx Zoo

Thanks to the Elks National Foundation (ENF), funds are available for Elks to invest back into and build stronger communities.  Today, the Hackensack Elks hosted an educational trip to the Bronx Zoo for 25 youth from the Boys and Girls Club of Lodi in Hackensack.

The children not only spent the day at the zoo but also experienced a 90-minute guided tour of the "Congo Gorilla Rainforest." Five docents offering an interactive education experience to small groups led the tour. The children learned about the jungle habitat and got up close and personal with monkeys, okapis, red river hogs, Western lowland gorillas, and more.
