Be a part of the circle of life during Party for the Planet. Start your Zoo visit with a stop at American Transmission Company’s table in the U.S. Bank Gathering Place and learn how all of us can do our part to help the environment and the pollinators! Play the Pollinator Game to learn more and get your Grow Smart® pollinator planting guide and Smooth Blue Aster seed packets to help attract pollinators.

Then, head down to the farm to meet gardening expert Melinda Myers, who will be on hand to show kids and their parents the best way to plant a garden and what plants make the best pollinators. Event guests also can take home a sapling or seeds to plant in their backyard along with a planting guide. Make sure to take home all your goodies in a reusable bag. The first 200 people to take the pledge to reduce their disposable bag consumption get a free reusable canvas tote bag. What would a trip to the Zoo be without the animals? Stop by the rhinos to learn about their care and how we all need to act to help save their friends in the wild. You can also make a rhino mask and take a behind-the-scenes tour of the rhino stall from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (suggested donation $2).

Follow animal tracks around the Zoo’s forest to discover and identify the animals living in the woods.

See you at the party!
