Earth Day
Woodland Park Zoo celebrates Earth Day

Saturday, April 22, 2017 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM


Do you ever wonder what life would be like without nature?

Do you ever wonder what nature would be like without us?

Earth Day is an invitation to celebrate nature and all it does for us, but also serves as a powerful reminder that we must return the favor by protecting the very things nature provides. By bringing people together on Earth Day, we pledge to protect our planet and unite to become a stronger force for nature.

On Earth Day, Woodland Park Zoo invites the community to be advocates for our planet with action opportunities throughout the zoo including:

  • Make a personal pledge to take actions to protect endangered species by signing or making a hand-written comment directly onto animal cut-outs located at several exhibits around the zoo.
  • Participate in the zoo’s new ECO-CELL recycle program by dropping off used handheld electronics at the zoo to be refurbished or recycled by ECO-CELL.
  • Sign an oversized card for a few of our Congress members to thank them for their commitment to the planet as they work on legislation in Washington, D.C.
  • Take home a biodegradable coaster embedded with noninvasive seeds that can be planted into a garden or pot, germinating later into beautiful flowers.


Location: Locations of action opportunities will be posted at the zoo entrances
Fees: Free with zoo admission or membership.
