The FENCE Armchair Traveler series will visit Kenya this month in a presentation by Inman high school teacher Tina Gragg on Sunday, Feb. 27 at 4 p.m.

Gragg, who teaches biology at Inman High School, traveled to the area around Lake Nakuru last year on a mission trip to work at an orphanage and school. During the visit, the group visited the Masai Mara game reserve to observe the mass migration of wildebeests and elephants, among many mammals that undertake the seasonal journey during the dry season in search of grazing and water.

The presentation will include short video segments and a selection of the more than six hundred photographs Gragg captured during the visit.

The FENCE Armchair Traveler series is offered free of charge with the support of the Kirby Endowment Fund at the Polk County Community Foundation.
