Earth Fest - It's a Party for the Planet!
Saturday, April 2, 2016
9 am to 4 pm
It’s a party for the planet! Celebrate the world through environmental conservation and cultural appreciation. Learn how to protect and preserve the earth while enjoying a variety of cultural dance performances scheduled throughout the day. Learn about animals from around the world during Stage Shows and Keeper Chats! Have fun exploring the many hands-on activities that will be offered with animal and environmental conservation organizations. In addition, visitors can discover more about native plants at the Zoo’s Backyard, which includes a children’s play area, nature trail and interactive garden. Don't forget to stop by the Zoo’s very last Recycle Rummage Sale inside Kampala’s Conference Room for great bargains!
