TULSA, Okla. (April 4, 2019) – Celebrate Earth Day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 20, during Party for the Planet at the Tulsa Zoo. Party for the Planet offers Earth Day activities full of fun and purpose, at the cost of regular zoo admission.
Discover what the Tulsa Zoo and conservation partners are doing to conserve and protect wildlife during 15 specialized zookeeper chats from our animal care experts.
Take the conservation celebration home and plant it. The Tulsa Zoo is hosting Party for the Plant-it, selling wildlife friendly plants and zoo poo compost. Stop by the circle drive and purchase some of the unique plant species used on zoo grounds and Tulsa Zoo generated compost from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visit tulsazoo.org/plant for more information.
This conservation celebration includes activities from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with the Tulsa Zoo education department, Tulsa Chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers, mascots and more.
In 2017 Party for the Planet guests were encouraged to take the Plastic Pledge to reduce use of one-time plastic. The zoo is committing to a year-round Plastic Pledge by moving away from plastic that is used once and thrown away. The Tulsa Zoo has switched to reusable shopping bags and reusable cups with lids and straws at the gift shop and food service locations. Zoo guests again are invited take the Plastic Pledge and to refill the reusable cups, or bring reusable water bottles to the zoo.
Save the date to Spring Into Action on May 4, 2019, as the Tulsa Zoo teams up with the City of Tulsa Storm Water Quality and Community Outreach to clean up Coal Creek.
