Celebrate the 44th Earth Day at the zoo! Party for the Planet is North America's largest Earth Day celebration, with more than 120 zoos and aquariums across the country participating.
Enrichment items will be given to our animals from 1pm to 3pm, and some of them are made by our BIG Zoo Lesson kids. You'll be able to get up close with a selection of our education animals and learn about them from their handlers. We'll also be featuring conservation demonstrations throughout the zoo. See you there!
