The choices we make and the actions we take impact the world. Party for the Planet includes eco-friendly activities to learn how we can all contribute to creating a healthier environment for all living things. The two-day event offers everyone a chance to enjoy nature and learn more about natural resources. When you first enter the U.S. Bank Gathering Place, stop at the ATC booth to play the pollinator wheel game. Then, find out what you would look like as a pollinator with a free photo op. The picture will be sent to you in a text. To attract those very important pollinators, ATC has a planting guide for you, along with a packet of seeds to plant at your home.
Take the "Better Bag Challenge" and pledge to reduce your disposable plastic bag consumption by using recyclable bags. The first 200 people to take the pledge each day will receive a free reusable canvas tote bag with the Zoo logo. Children, alongside horticulturist Melinda Myers, can help plant native species in the butterfly garden to attract pollinators. Of course, don't forget the animals. Learn about endangered animals, like the rhino, and find out how we can all help protect them in the wild.
