SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - The Great Plains Zoo is part of several zoos around the nation that are hosting a “Party for the Planet.” It’s part of an Earth Day celebration that will give people the chance to learn about the zoo’s conservation efforts.

The Great Plains Zoo is hoping it will encourage people to spring into action to help save the Earth. The event is Saturday from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. People just have to pay the price for a zoo admission, and they can participate in activities for free.

Admission for adults is $14, but seniors over the age of 60 get $1 off. Kids cost $10.50.

At the event Saturday, people can bring gift cards to recycle, grab a seed packet from staff to start their own pollinator garden, or even sign a plastic reduction pledge to help the water systems. There will be a zookeeper chat at 2:30 PM near the giraffe barn to talk about the efforts in place to save them. You can find out more about the “Party for the Planet” on the zoo’s website.
