Canceled: World Giraffe Day

June 21, 2020 - 10:00am to 04:00pm

This event has been canceled.

Celebrate the longest-necked animal on the longest day or night (depending on which hemisphere you call home) of the year—June 21—every year!

Learn to tell the difference between a reticulated and a Masai giraffe, how many bones are in those long necks and why giraffes have horns (and why those horns are actually called ossicones).

Meet Oregon Zoo's resident giraffes Desi and Buttercup and their care team, and participate in fun giraffe activities from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Free with zoo admission.

Parking is $2/hour or $8/day, and lots tend to fill up quickly—so taking public transport is encouraged. Call 503-238-RIDE (7433) or visit Trimet for fare and route information.
