Earth Day Celebration

April 27, 2014 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

The zoo and more than 100 other top zoos and aquariums across the country are throwing the 8th Annual Party for the Planet– the largest combined Earth Day celebration in North America—on Sunday, April 27, and everyone can join the festivities for free!

Conservation-based activities will run from noon to 4 p.m. and will include gas and electric demonstrations, arts and crafts for the kids, a “promise tree” where visitors can make a commitment to help ensure a healthy planet, and face painting stations. The Zoo’s Conservation Advisory Committee will highlight the work being done by its grant recipients, and stations will be located throughout the zoo to educate visitors about issues like recycling, watershed pollution prevention, the impact of non-native plants, sustainable fisheries, and more.

In addition to games and activities, Asha Nan will be playing live music. Asha Nan is a soulful blend of Brazilian, African, reggae, funk, and hip-hop meshed with socially-conscious lyrics that promote peace and unity.

As if all that wasn’t enough— Keeper talks will be offered at 11 a.m. (Red pandas) and 1 p.m. (Bush dogs) during feeding times.  A raffle will be held throughout the day to support the Zoo’s Conservation Fund, with a grand prize of a conservation gift basket filled with eco-friendly items from the Zoo’s Funky Monkey Gift Shop.

Thanks to a generous sponsorship from Pacific Gas & Electric, anyone can visit Sequoia Park Zoo at no charge on Sunday, April 27.

All in all, it will be a great day to get together with friends and family and head on over to the Zoo on Sunday, April 27.
