The Zoo’s World Elephant Day Celebration highlights the state-of-the-art Elephants of Asia habitat, with chances to learn about its four elephant residents and how they are cared for, through educational activities and exclusive behind-the-scenes barn tours, which are available to the public just once per year. There will be barn tours led by elephant care staff and volunteers from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., education stations illustrating how elephants use their dexterous trunks; the differences between Asian and African elephants; and the art and science of elephant enrichment, a “conservation craft” station, where youngsters can make an pocket-sized elephant of their own using recycled materials and the chance to meet young author and conservation advocate Erin Chang, author of children’s book Seven Toes
