Party For the Planet

Gladys Porter Zoo 500 E Ringgold St,, BROWNSVILLE

Party for the Planet is the Zoo’s celebration of Earth Day where we bring eco-conscious members of the community together to help share the message of conservation.  From 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. the Zoo will spotlight conservation with fun activities, face painting, and contests for children. Local organizations will also be present to discuss the importance of going green and how visitors can help preserve the Earth’s resources for a better environment. Again this year, we will have activities for Girl Scouts to help them accomplish 90 to 100% of their badge requirements.
