Ah, spring! The trees are blossoming and the flowers are blooming. Nature's perfume wafts through the warm air. This time of year makes many people want to jump for joy and celebrate the wonders of our planet. If that sounds like you, come to the Milwaukee County Zoo's annual "green" event that celebrates our planet and commemorates Migratory Bird Day and Earth Day.

  • Visitors can band birds at 7 a.m., 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. before the Zoo opens (please pre-register at 414-256-5466).
  • Guests can also get "collared" and migrate like a polar bear on the Hudson Bay, moving from stop to stop throughout the Zoo, searching for "food" and stable hunting grounds.
  • Tree saplings will be handed out and there will be fun Nature Zoomobile Tours that highlight conservation efforts on Zoo grounds.
  • Kids and their parents can play the pollinator game at the ATC booth in the U.S. Bank Gathering Place and then visit Melinda Myers, nationally renowned horticulturist and gardening expert, to help revitalize the Grow Smart pollinator garden in the farm.
