Toledo Zoo throws a Party for the Planet

In addition to being a great family destination, the Toledo Zoo is a first-rate conservation organization. So it’s no surprise that the Zoo makes Earth Day a Party for the Planet. This year’s celebration is on Saturday, April 20, 2013.

To help you make a positive impact on the planet you’re celebrating, on April 20 the Zoo will accept some harder-to-recycle items (a full list of welcomed recyclables is at toledozoo.org/planet). Without entering the Zoo or paying admission, you can take items to a recycling drop-off in the Zoo’s Anthony Wayne Trail parking lot -- made possible by Keep Toledo/Lucas County Beautiful, Lott Industries, Aluminum Cans for Burned Children, EcoErek, Goodwill Industries, Lucas County Solid Waste Management District and TerraCycle.

At the Zoo’s award-winning Nature’s Neighborhood, families will enjoy hands-on Earth Day activities, including several of the community’s environmentally friendly organizations sharing their conservation initiatives. In the Zoo’s Main Plaza, from 1 to 3 p.m.,Radio Disney AM 910 will celebrate the day with music, prizes and games.

But Party for the Planet is also about appreciating our planet’s animals, which rely on us to take care of the land, water and air they call home. You’re invited to learn more about the animals during feeding and enrichment demonstrations all day long:

10:30 a.m.: gorilla enrichment at Gorilla Meadow
