QUALITY OF LIFE

8th Annual Elephant Festival at the El Paso Zoo
Festival is the word, as the El Paso Zoo highlights our city’s favorite pachyderms Savannah and Juno in a celebration of elephants worldwide.
It’s the 8th Annual Elephant Festival at the El Paso Zoo.   Come out and join us on Saturday, September 26th and Sunday, September 27th for BIG fun while you support conservation of the world’s largest land mammal.
 
You’ll touch neat bio-facts from elephants; kids can play elephant-themed games, learn about elephants during special story times and demonstrations, and discover delicious aromas and tantalizing foods from “Taste of the Wild” at our Asia Market. 
 
Zoo visitors will find out how they can help save the elephants, even while shopping for their groceries. 
 
Enjoy a special “Breakfast with the Elephants” or go on a Produce Hunt and help with feeding our elephants during their keepers’ daily enrichment routine. This special behind the scenes 30 minute tour gives each participant an opportunity for an inside view of the elephant facilities plus the fun of hiding food for the elephants
 
To make advance reservations and sign up for the special Breakfast or a Produce Hunt with the Elephants go the scheduled programs page at www.elpasozoo.org/adventure.  The deadline to sign up for the breakfast is Tuesday, September 22.
