Party for the Planet 2013!
A Celebration of Earth Day and Animal Enrichment
The Virginia Zoo is hosting a Party for the Planet Saturday, April 20 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
It's a celebration of Earth and animals that will bring out your wild side, and provide information about conservation steps you can take to protect natural habitats locally and around the world.
Watch keepers demonstrate the enrichment activities they use to promote our animals' social, mental and physical health and wellbeing. Play like a monkey with the enrichment items we give animals from otters to giraffes. Talk to environmental experts to learn how all life -- including humans -- effects the environment, the lives of other species and our lives, too.
Activities and exhibits will include informational presentations, animal enrichment activities and crafts at the Zoo Event Pavilion.
It's an Earth Day celebration unlike any other!
All activities are included with admission:
- $11 Adults
- $9 Children (2-11)
- $10 Seniors (62+)
