Party for the Planet Celebration The Zoo will close to the public starting March 15. While there have been no known cases of exposure to COVID-19 at the Zoo, the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, guests, community and animals is our top priority. In response to the gathering restrictions ordered by Governor DeWine, the Cincinnati Zoo will be canceling or postponing any large events of 100+ people through April 30. This includes Party for the Planet Celebration. More info here. Party for the Planet In lieu of Party for the Planet, our annual Earth Day Celebration at the Zoo, we will be providing a virtual resource to allow families to celebrate this important day, but from the comfort and safety of their own homes. We will be partnering with other, local conservation and sustainability focused organizations to create hands-on activities and learning opportunities, while highlighting the awesome work that Cincinnati organizations are doing to better our planet. Earth Day is about coming together for our environment, and while we can’t do this physically this year, we are excited to continue with our partnerships and to bring Earth Day to you.
