Party for the PlanetFree admission for members with ID. Call 414-256-5466 for details or to pre-register for bird-banding observation.

To celebrate the arrival of spring, the Milwaukee County Zoo will host its annual Party for the Planet. This “green” event commemorates Migratory Bird Day and Earth Day. Those who pre-register can watch zookeepers band birds early in the morning before the Zoo opens. All visitors can get “banded” like a wood thrush and visit migration stops throughout the Zoo. Check out the Seafood Watch station to learn about sustainable seafood options and participate in sea-related activities. Families can help out in the Zoo’s pollinator garden with gardening expert Melinda Myers. Tree saplings will be given out to guests, and there will also be Nature Zoomobile Tours to highlight the Zoo’s conservation efforts.
