Earth Day Celebration

April 22, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm

Every year, AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums throw a ‘Party for the Planet’ to encourage people to take action to create healthy habitats for wildlife and humans to thrive together.

For Earth Day, Nature Center staff and volunteers will be transforming the Songbird Garden into a Certified Wildlife Garden for native wildlife to thrive!

Stop by the docent station at the Songbird Garden (near the otters) where you can learn more about creating your own Certified Wildlife Garden by planting native, bird-friendly plants!

*Regular admission rates apply.  The event will be taking place 10:30am-2:30pm, but the Nature Center will be open from 10am-4pm.
