This event includes a kids' table, free zoo admission with ticket purchase, Hors d’oeuvres, wine and non-alcoholic drinks. Local beer provided by Elkmont Exchange. We will have science tables where kids (and adults, too!) can talk to a scientist and learn about the critters of the Smokies! There will be kids' activities at each table, face painting, and a scavenger hunt. We’ll also have some animal ambassadors from the zoo to touch and learn about!
Plus, it's never too early for holiday shopping! The Ball includes an extensive silent auction full of biodiversity-themed items and exciting experiences (guided hikes, hotel stays, adventure packages, etc.).
