Party for the Planet

dannyP4PJoin the Greenest Zoo in America as we celebrate Earth Day during our 7th annual “Party for the Planet”! Businesses and organizations from around the region will be on hand to share their expertise and resources about living more sustainably within our communities. Topics include solar energy, composting, recycling, energy efficiency, green building, rain gardens/barrels, sustainable food, green products, and much more!

Rain Barrel Art Benefit Auction

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIn addition to learning ways to go green, visit the Go Green Garden Exhibit for the 4th Annual Rain Barrel Art Benefit Auction. Local artists have done their part to motivate area homeowners to save rainwater in dazzling, beautiful, painted rain barrels. The typical dull green or drab rain barrel has been revamped into a creative and colorful accent piece that will make any homeowner proud to use in their landscaping.  These barrels will be on display throughout the Zoo during the month of April in the Education Center and the Go Green Garden. Guests will be able to bid on their favorite barrels during Party for the Planet in a silent auction between 6 and 8pm. Winners can take their rain barrels home at the end of the night. Proceeds from the auction will be used to further environmental education and awareness. Rain barrels are an easy and inexpensive way to conserve water and save money. For more information, visit Save Local Waters.

 Tunes & Blooms

It is a wonderful way to enjoy the beautiful tulips and other spring flowers the Zoo has planted, listen to some great, local music, learn about ways to go green, and enjoy the spring evening with your family and friends. Plus, enjoy Zoo Blooms all around.

Admission to the Zoo is FREE after 5pm and parking is $9.
