Celebrate Earth Day at the Zoo!

Party for the Planet

Many thanks to our 2014 Party for the Planet sponsor and participants!  We’ll see you in April 2015!

Here at Toledo Zoo, we’re all about being good stewards of the environment. That’s why Earth Day is such a big deal around here.  Celebrate with us by bringing in your recyclables and taking part in cool activities that help you learn how to be a little “greener” in the future.  We’ll have friends from local environmental organizations here at vendor booths to highlight their work in our community and show you how to get involved!  Also, watch animal feeding demonstrations and meet some of our keepers.
