Believing that “Every day is Earth Day,” the WNY Earth Day Family Expo Committee and the Buffalo Zoo are holding their annual Party for the Planet from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 29.
The event will be held rain or shine at the Buffalo Zoo, 300 Parkside Ave., Buffalo.
Area environmental groups will have displays designed to teach children and families ways to appreciate and care for the Earth. An Environmental Scavenger Hunt will be held for children, with participants receiving a bag of healthy and educational prizes.
The bags eco-friendly, made from recycled T-shirts. Members of the Aspire WNY community are helping to prepare the T-shirt bags. In addition, there will be a Bag Making station at the event.
There will be a raffle for a gift certificate for Go-Bike and a membership to the zoo.
The WNY Earth Day Family Expo Committee is a volunteer organization (501c3). The event is funded by donations and is free for visitors with the price of zoo admission.
Each year approximately 300 children with their families participate in the event. The Expo Committee is seeking sponsors for financial donations to offset the costs of the event. Any organization or individual donating $50 or more will have their logo included on the expo materials. There will also be large boards displaying sponsor names at the registration table the day of the event.
