Here's another great Earth Day / Earth Week Activity!
April 22, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. at the National Zoo
Special activities will take place in the "Zoo in Your Backyard" exhibit, just off Olmsted Walk near Asia Trail.
Eco-Craft Recycling is great, but reusing is even
better! Find out how to turn newspaper into a plant pot and take home
your own. You'll make a pot, fill it with soil and drop in some
seeds—when you get home you can put it right into the ground.
Recycle at the Zoo FONZ has partnered with an
outside company to collect and recycle Zoo visitors' cell phones,
batteries, and accessories. For many working cell phones, MP3 players,
digital cameras, calculators, Apple laptop computers, gaming devices,
and external drives—FONZ will get money to support conservation! All
other devices will be recycled under strict environmental guidelines,
keeping hazardous materials from reaching landfills and harming human
and environmental health.
Bring all materials to be recycled to the front desk in the Visitor Center.
