Party for the Planet at the Zoo

Our Earth Day celebrations were cut short due to a weather closure at the Zoo. We are happy to invite you to join us for a make-up day on Saturday, May 14!

Become an environmental superhero! Learn about the animals at the Zoo and participate in activities that inspire you to care for the planet.

  • Zoo Chats with our animal care professionals (full schedule below!)
  • Interactive conservation and research discovery stops
  • Big games like giant Jenga, a recycle relay, and a dry dunk tank
  • Appearances by Winston the polar bear mascot and environmental superheroes

All activities are free with regular Zoo admission.
