Join us on Saturday, September 22nd for a BIG celebration. Our beloved Ruth is turning 60! We are also celebrating Emily’s 54 birthday and her 50th anniversary here at the Buttonwood Park Zoo.
Join us at the Asian elephant habitat from 11 – 2 to celebrate our girls on National Elephant Appreciation Day. Take part in activities for the whole family while learning more about Asian elephants and what you can do to help this endangered species. Come watch the girls enjoy birthday themed enrichment and enjoy a slice of birthday cake at 1:00pm.
If you would like to bring Emily and Ruth a birthday gift, donations of unopened packages of unsalted shelled peanuts, yogurt covered raisins, and dried fruit will be accepted on their behalf.
