Join us for Elephant Appreciation Day on Saturday, September 25, 2021 as we celebrate Ruth and Emily’s 63rd and 57th birthdays! Stop by the Asian elephant habitat for educational activities from 11:00am – 2:00pm and a special enrichment offering at 12:00pm.

Did you know – Ruth and Emily are among the oldest Asian elephants in North America? It is an honor and a privilege to provide a home for these beautiful elephants and we welcome the community to join us in honoring them!

  • If you would like to bring Emily and Ruth a special treat, donations of unopened packages of unsalted shelled peanuts, yogurt covered raisins, and dried fruit will be accepted on their behalf.
  • You can make a donation in their honor that goes directly towards Asian elephant conservation.
  • Or you can symbolically adopt an elephant through our new Adopt an Animal program.
