Tule Elk and the California Living Museum

$55 Tule Elk and the California Living Museum

October 26, 2019

Join Teranga Ranch on an educational adventure as we explore the Tule Elk Preserve and the spectacular native wildlife that can be found at the California Living Museum.

The Tule Elk preserve in Buttonwillow is an homage to the past and home to California’s only endemic elk, the Tule Elk. Learn his story of a comeback from the brink of extinction and watch herd dynamics in action.

The California Living Museum is an amazing collection of native wildlife that came in through their wildlife hospital but could not be returned to the wild for whatever reason. It’s a little educational gem in Bakersfield!

We’ll also explore Pyramid Lake along the way!

This is a carpool/caravan trip!

Complete, detailed itinerary will be made available at registration.
