Fund-A-Need—San Antonio Zoo Train

Since 1956, the San Antonio Zoo Eagle, formerly known as the Brackenridge Eagle, has chugged along the tracks skirting the banks of the San Antonio River as it makes its way through one of San Antonio’s most popular parks.

This year’s Zoobilation Ball will be benefiting the purchase of two new upgraded trains. The new trains will allow us to continue to provide generations of guests with the same nostalgic experience.
