Celebrate World Elephant Day
August 12, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree with Zoo Museum
Celebrate World Elephant Day at our Zoo Elephant Pavilion Open House!
Ever wonder how an elephant takes a bath, does her nails, or checks her weight? Now, you can find out at the Roger Williams Park Zoo Textron Elephant Pavilion tour. The tour provides an up-close view of the workings of the elephant barn, and insight on the care elephants receive. There are no animal interactions on the tour, and the elephants will not be in the barn during the tours. Guests may visit with the elephants after the tour in the Ivory Ella Yard.
Twenty-minute tours of the barn are on a first come first served basis. Included in price of admission.
There’s a lot to explore during your visit:
