Coal Valley, IL – April 17, 2013 – Niabi Zoo announced today that it will be holding its annual Earth Day celebration, Party for the Planet, on Sunday, April 21. The event, which will be held from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the Zoo, will feature a variety of activities and information to help both kids and adults alike learn how they can make every day Earth Day.

This year’s Party for the Planet theme is “Habitats at Home,” and the event will focus on the many ways in which Quad City residents can help the countless wildlife habitats that surround them on a daily basis. Niabi Zoo will be distributing 150 conifer tree saplings for attendees to take home and plant, as well as 250 limited edition Niabi Zoo 50th Anniversary reusable grocery bags. The reusable bags can be used in place of disposable plastic bags which frequently end up in landfills. Zoo guests will also learn what they can do in their own backyards to create and sustain vital habitats for native wildlife.

Niabi Zoo will also be supporting the conservation of Monarch butterflies in a variety of ways. Zoo staff and volunteers will be distributing seeds from the milkweed plant, which is vital for the growth and development of Monarch butterflies. Event attendees will also have a chance to learn about the amazing Annual Great Migration of Monarch butterflies, in which millions of these beautiful creatures travel thousands of miles. Researchers have been tagging and tracking these butterflies in order to learn more about their incredible journey.

Niabi Zoo will be open from 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM. Regular admission rates will apply.
