Elephantastic


Explore Elephant Lands during Elephantastic, February 13th through 15th! Oregonians love our elephants, and we have created a fabulous new home for our famous herd! Baby Lily and her family have moved in to spacious new digs, designed with state-of-the-art features that allow elephants to be elephants. Elephantastic activities include: elephant ears to wear, self-guided tours throughout the habitat (including behind-the-scenes areas), the opportunity to make your own valentines (for elephants or your loved ones), and the chance to win an Elephant Lands Discovery Tour! Elephantastic is free with zoo admission. Click here for more details.

Sleep Train's Pajama Drive


There are over 400,000 children living in foster care in the United States, many of whom have entered the system with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Studies show that for many foster children, the challenges are just beginning. But Sleep Train knows it doesn’t have to be that way. With your help, we can provide foster children with the little things that make a big difference—like cozy new pajamas. Sleep Train’s Pajama Drive is on now! Help a local foster child today by bringing your gift of new pajamas in any size—from infant to teen—to Sleep Train. Or donate online at SleepTrainFosterKids.org, and the shopping will be done for you.
