Fifty members of River Parishes Hospital’s Senior Friends Program recently took a bus trip to Global Wildlife in Folsom.

Members took a guided safari wagon tour of over 900 acres and were able to feed and interact with wildlife, including bison, giraffe, zebra, camels, eland and more. This bus trip to Global Wildlife is just one of the many activities available to seniors through the hospital’s Senior Friends Program.


For more information about the Senior Friends Program or to request a membership application, call River Parishes Hospital Senior Friends Coordinator at (985) 653-4247.
