Celebrating Elephants Day 

When: Sat., May 26, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. 2012
Price: varies

Elephants are known for their immense stature, proclivity for peanuts, and unfortunate status as endangered species. But beyond these basic facts, there's a lot more to be learned about the looming pachyderms. You can start by stopping by the Oakland Zoo (9777 Golf Links Rd., Oakland) on Saturday, May 26, for Celebrating Elephants Day, which features heaps of elephant-themed activities and information stations including an elephant research camp, $5 barn tours, and more. Proceeds benefit the Amboseli Elephant Research Project, the longest-running study of wild elephants in the world. 10 a.m.-3 p.m.; $8.25-$13.75, free for kids under two and adults over 80. 510-632-9525 or
