(April 17, 2019) – Join together and help protect our planet at The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens’ Earth Day celebration, Monday, April 22, from 9 a.m. to noon. This year’s event includes morning yoga, a nature and pollinator walk, giveaways, and zero waste activities. Earth Day activities are free to members or with paid admission.

 

“With our mission focused on desert conservation through preservation, education and appreciation, we celebrate our incredible Earth every day here at The Living Desert,” said Allen Monroe, President/CEO of The Living Desert. “The official Earth Day serves as the perfect reminder to protect our most valuable natural resources, plants, and animals.”

 

Visitors can kick off Earth Day with yoga in the Palm Garden, led by friends from lululemon (bring your own mat), or enjoy a nature walk led by an expert volunteer and learn all about desert flora. The first 300 guests will receive a free milkweed plant which is attracts local butterflies; available while supplies last. In addition, the entire family will enjoy animal encounters, keeper chats and information about how to protect desert plants and animals, including the imperiled vaquita porpoise.

 

The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit LivingDesert.org or contact (760) 346-5694. The Living Desert’s free interactive app is available to download on smartphones and tablets.
