Earth Day!

Sunday, April 27, 2014
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

It's Earth Day at the Zoo! However, Earth Day at Niabi Zoo means it's time to have a party!

It's time for our annual Earth Day celebration on Sunday, April 27th! The event will feature a variety of activities and information to help both kids and adults alike learn how they can make every day Earth Day.

This year we will be supporting the conservation of Monarch butterflies in a variety of ways! We will be distributing seeds from the milkweed plant, which is vital for the growth and development of Monarch butterflies. This will also be your chance to learn about the amazing Annual Great Migration of Monarch butterflies, in which millions of these beautiful creatures travel thousands of miles. Researchers have been tagging and tracking these butterflies in order to learn more about this incredible journey.

Also, pick up some great tips from our conservation experts about how you can help save wildlife and wild places right in your own backyard!
