For Immediate Release: August 26, 2021

Riverbanks and T-Mobile Connect to Create Lifelong Learners

[Columbia, SC] — Experience all-new opportunities to connect with nature through Lifelong Learners at Riverbanks Zoo and Garden sponsored by T-Mobile—America’s largest 5-G network.

T-Mobile’s investment in Riverbanks and the community will enhance learning opportunities at the Zoo and Garden through nature and environmental education. Wild adventures await for all ages from early childhood to adult programs and experiences for the entire family.

“The T-Mobile Lifelong Learners sponsorship has afforded Riverbanks additional opportunities to advance our mission of creating connections and inspiring actions that will have a lasting impact on conservation,” said Rachael Bashor, Director of Education at Riverbanks Zoo and Garden. “We are proud to partner with T-Mobile to offer educational and engaging experiences.”

Budding zookeepers and horticulturists will discover amazing animals and plants while fostering a love of wildlife and wild places. Families too will connect with nature through wild and imaginative programs while adults can grow their love of the natural world with new opportunities for exploration.

“The sponsorship with Riverbanks Zoo and Garden is a great opportunity for T-Mobile to show its support for the local community,” said Irene Kieweg, T-Mobile Vice President. “Community is at the center of what we do which is why we’re proud to be able to give people of all ages a fun and educational way to connect and interact with nature.”

The fun begins this fall with Little Learners, family, and adult programs. Sign up today!
