This past Saturday our family was invited to The Los Angeles Zoo to celebrate their new exhibit Wild for the Planet. This event kicked off on Earth Day weekend and runs through Endangered Species Day on May, 18, 2018 from 10am to 4pm.

Every weekend, Wild for the Planet will feature “animals feedings, keeper talks & demonstrations; a conservation themed aerialist show, puppet shows and other activities, fun and information focusing on the importance of protecting the environment and its creatures.”  There will be spotlights for native plants and other plant species that support local birds and the Zoo’s conservation efforts in honor of the International Year of the Bird.

Beyond the amazing exhibits at the Zoo, there are a number of fun new tents and shows running through May 18th. Families can learn about planting succulents, make beautiful window crafts for birds, visit one of many tables about sustainability in LA, and so much more. Please check out the schedule online for more information about the daily activities/shows.  Your little ones may be extra excited to come on specific days featuring their favorite animals.

The L.A. Zoo is such a wonderful way to spend time with your little ones while learning all about animals around the world and sustainability to make the Earth a better place.

If you and your family have not been The Los Angeles Zoo recently, please go and check it out!
