When we began offering our “Social Distancing Drive Thru
Zoo” experience at North Georgia Wildlife Park & Zoo, we
really did not know how people would respond. We have
been overwhelmed buy your response! Literally thousands
of families have driven through our zoo over the past two
weeks, and we have received so many generous
contributions to help us with the ongoing costs of operating the zoo and feeding our animals.
Perhaps the most gratifying thing for us has been the comments we have
received. Our guests have told us over and over, “Thank you for doing this!
Thank you for providing a safe experience for our children. It’s so nice to be
able to get out of the house and do something fun, while still practicing social distancing.”
But the best thing has been the smiles on the faces of the children! Their
excitement at seeing the animals has made the “Drive Thru Zoo” worth all the time and effort.
So, thank you to our zoo family, friends and community for your continual
support. We love you all and will continue to pray for you during the coming days.
