Celebrate Earth Day at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay on April 22

 

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay will be celebrating their annual Earth Day event on Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 10am – 4pm.  Come on out to learn about nature, animals and how you can make a difference in the world around you.

Keepers will be on hand to answer your questions about gorillas, cheetahs, lions, and orangutans and you can watch the animals eat some special Earth Day treats.  You can also learn about some of Busch Gardens’ special projects like composting and recycling, the Rising Tide Conservation project and the Tampa Bay Watch Oyster Restoration project.

Don’t forget to bring in a cell phone to recycle and learn how it can save gorillas. As a thank you, guests who donate will receive a voucher to feed a kangaroo or lorikeet.  In addition to the Earth Day celebration, guests can also enjoy the Food and Wine Festival and the concert after!
