Nandi’s 2nd Birthday Party

Saturday, August 20, 2016
8:30 am — 10:30 am

elephant6228zToday we’ll celebrate Nandi’s second birthday! It’s hard to believe Tucson’s African elephant calf is turning two. Join us for a morning of crafts, activities, and (of course) a “Happy Birthday” sing-along. Activities are free with regular Zoo admission.

Have you heard about the Elephant Origami Challenge? You can bring your finished origami elephants to this event OR fold some elephants while you’re at the Zoo today! We’ll send all the origami elephants we collect to our partners at 96 Elephants to contribute to the World Record attempt.


Can’t make it to the celebration? Donate today to give Nandi a Birthday Gift! Or visit the Diana Madaras Gallery on Skyline and Campbell. They will be having an event from 1-4pm with a cake for Nandi and part of the proceeds from all African art purchased that entire day will go towards buying toys for Nandi.  The first 100 people get a little Nandi button to wear. The first 25 people to spend $50 or more get a free Nandi poster.
