 Earth Day Celebration Art Contest: Calling all artists! Now that you’ve read all about how the Zoo is going green, we’d love to invite you to join us. We’re having a green art contest! You know all about recycling, but did you know that recycled items can make great art? We’re hosting our first ever eco-friendly art contest- and the winners will be displayed at our 2nd annual Earth Day Celebration & Eco-Fair!
