We are throwing a Party for the Planet, and you’re invited! You can participate in activities and actions to make a positive impact on the many challenges facing our planet, starting right here in the Zoo’s local watershed. Over one billion people around the globe are expected to step up to make the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day an inspiring time of action. That’s why so many organizations around Madison and Dane County have joined forces to make this an event to remember.
