Earth Day For All
Woodland Park Zoo will launch ”Earth Day for All” on April 25, 2020 in celebration of both the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and the 30th anniversary of Americans with Disabilities Act. Earth Day for All will become a new annual mission event at the zoo focused on inclusion, equity and conservation for people of all abilities.
The April 25th event will invite community groups and organization that support people with disabilities to help plant three new pollinator gardens at the Zoo’s West and South entrances. These gardens will focus on soil preparation and compost, native and drought tolerant species and attracting pollinators and toxic-free maintenance.
Earth Day for All is to become an annual mission event at Woodland Park Zoo with the aim to make conservation accessible to all. Their goals for this project is to work with community groups and organizations that support people with disabilities, to engage with broad zoo audiences, to provide at least 500 pollinator garden toolkits to the public in hopes to improve the sustainable management of management of local gardens, urban green spaces, habitats and pollinators.
