Party for the Planet

Stop out to the NEW Zoo & Adventure Park this Saturday for our Party for the Planet event: the day we celebrate Earth Day – along with our animals’ birthdays! (Or should we say “b-Earthdays?”) Throughout the day, many of the animals will have a chance to open “special birthday treats” made just for them! Be present at noon as we sing “Happy Birthday” to all of the Zoo animals and serve cake for 1,000 party guests (while supplies last)! Don’t forget to sign the giant birthday card to our critters – located in the Visitor Center! We will also have fun and educational Earth Day activities in the Education & Conservation Center Classroom until 2:00 p.m. – so be sure to stop by.

Our animals would love to receive birthday gifts!  You can drop donated items off at the Visitor’s Center main entrance anytime during the event. Please consider the following needed items:

  • Gift cards (from Fleet Farm, Petco/Petsmart, Home Depot, or animal supply stores
  • New rakes, shovels, brooms
  • Pet kennels/carriers, new pet/horse toys
