Sep. 14- Pecan City Pedalers Nut Roll

Come enjoy Southwest Georgia hospitality at a fully supported, fun-filled day of riding back roads, great food, and fun for the family at Chehaw Park.

The Nut Roll touts low traffic patterns and beautiful scenery. The 104-mile loop takes you to the Welcome Center in Plains, GA, the hometown of President Jimmy Carter. All routes are clearly marked and mostly flat but not to disappoint we sprinkle in a few gentle rollers.

The Nut Roll is fully supported and has generous rest stops flavored with great southern hospitality.

Register early, save big and receive a FREE soft cotton tech T-shirt by Tultex.

Nov. 23- Animal Thanksgiving

Animal Thanksgiving is the day we enjoy watching some of our favorite animals receive special Thanksgiving treats made by keepers and the families who visit the Zoo. Animal Thanksgiving allows volunteers and our community an opportunity to participate in a program that helps to enrich the lives of our animals by promoting their natural instincts and keeping them mentally and physically stimulated.

Games, crafts and activities in the plaza from 10-2 including take home thanksgiving crafts, make your own enrichment for your pet, and of course creating enrichment for our zoo animals!
