The Toledo Zoo’s Party for the Planet is a way to connect zoo visitors to nature, and to encourage all to be good stewards of the environment. Party-goers are invited to bring recyclables, including tires, TVs, computers, clothes, and even old paint. Agencies such as Goodwill, Imagination Station, and Keep Toledo Beautiful will have information and activity booths scattered throughout the zoo, where kids and adults can learn while having fun with hands-on activities. There will be up-close animal encounters, too, including those at the new aquarium. The event is part of a national effort by more than 100 American zoos to call attention to the need to help protect the planet’s future.

Regular zoo admission costs apply. 10am-4pm, Saturday, April 18. The Toledo Zoo, 2 Hippo Way. 419-385-5721, toledozoo.org.
