West Palm Beach – On Saturday, April 27th, 2019 from 11:30am to 4:00pm, Lion Country Safari will be hosting its first ever conservation fair, along with the annual “Party for the Planet” Earth Day celebration. This year’s event theme, “Spring into Action,” aims to engage and inspire families through activities, crafts, and more to get involved in conservation initiatives in the community. The Party for the Planet event is open to the public and is included with paid admission.
Guests attending the event can enjoy free activities, a staff art show with proceeds benefitting conservation, a DJ, meet community partners engaged in conservation work, and learn about what they can do to help the environment. Lion Country Safari is also partnering with the local chapter of American Association of Zookeepers and Busch Wildlife Sanctuary to plant a pollinator garden and hopes to encourage families to join them in the project or plant their own pollinator garden at home.
Lion Country Safari’s “Party for the Planet” event is part of the Association of Zoos and Aquarium’s public conservation education campaign that encourages families to learn about and conserve the planet. Party for the Planet is the largest combined Earth Day celebration in North America, with more than 130 AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums across North America hosting events to raise awareness about conservation and sustainable living.
