Toledo Zoo Party for the Planet

Join the Toledo Zoo in celebrating Mother Earth and exemplifying our mission of inspiring others to join us in caring for animals and conserving the natural world during Party for the Planet, supported by MetroPCS and Toledo Waterways Initiative along with media sponsor Buckeye Broadband, on Saturday, April 22.

Drop off your recyclable goods – including hard-to-recycle items– between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. in the Zoo’s Anthony Wayne Trail parking lot. Admission/parking charges do not apply to this special recycling project, which is made possible through partnerships with: Goodwill, AIM Ecycling, LLC., GoGreen Ohio, KTLCB/Lucas County Waste Management, Gateway Recycling and Waste Reduction, Inc., and TerraCycle.

As well as dropping off your recyclables, the Zoo is the perfect place to spend a great green day with your family! Get tips on how to be more ecofriendly through displays from local “green” organizations, enjoy earth-friendly activities in the award-winning Nature’s Neighborhood and witness animal feeding demonstrations all across the Zoo. These demonstrations are more than just fun to watch; they also serve to remind us that animals all across the world are relying on humans to take care of the land, water and air we all call home. Additionally, six local schools will have miniature gardens with recycled materials incorporated into their designs on display in the Great Hall of the Museum of Science both Saturday, April 22 and Sunday, April 23. All of the green activities are included free with Zoo admission.
