The Endangered Ark Foundation (EAF) wants you to join them as they celebrate an un-FOUR-gettable birthday!

The elephant known as Dori Marie is turning four!

Join us for the ele-family event on Saturday, Aug. 10, 2019, from 9 – 11 am to celebrate this special birthday.


This birthday celebration will also serve as a fundraiser for the EAF to continue to build expansion playgrounds on the EAF property for Dori Marie and her larger than life, ele-family. The project will provide additional wooded acreage for the elephants to browse and roam. Dori’s last birthday fundraiser provided the construction of a wading pond on the EAF property. With your help, EAF plans to enhance this feature and grow Dori’s outdoor playground!

The General Admission fee of $10 will allow visitors to meet the EAF pachyderm residents up-close and learn firsthand about these magnificent creatures. Educational presentations will be provided throughout the event, including an elephant food challenge, Q & A sessions, guessing the elephants’ weight, information about the Asian elephant species and unique characteristics about individual ele-residents.

All visitors will be offered birthday refreshments and the opportunity to take unique elphie-selfies and watch Dori Marie eat her cake!

By Popular request – the “ELE-KIDS KORNER” will also be featured again this year!  All of Dori’s youngest guests are welcome to enjoy ele-crafts, games, prizes and much more!

We hope to see you there!
