We’re always up for a party! And if it benefits a good cause, well, even better! That’s why we’re wild about Brookfield Zoo’s Party for the Planet, an Earth Day extravaganza for your whole herd.
April 22 is all about Mother Earth and the creatures who inhabit it, with green-themed craft activities and the chance to help zoo staff plant flowers and even a tree. Be sure to visit the Eco Expo, where representatives from companies and organizations will share ideas on how to help the planet and go green as a family. And while you’re visiting the zoo’s animals, keep an eye (and ear!) out for special Zoo Chats designed just for the day.
In keeping with the Earth Day theme of “Reduce, reuse, recycle,” representatives from recycling organizations like ECO-CELL and Soles for Kids will be on-site, accepting donations. (Something to keep in mind when you’re doing spring cleaning.) And if you bring an approved item to recycle, you get free parking between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.—can you say win-win?!
So gather your party animals and head to the zoo, because this is one greened-up celebration everyone, from the littlest lemur to the giantest giraffe, is sure to love.
