Great Bend Brit Spaugh Zoo will celebrate Earth Day from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, April 22, with an after-hours event. Admission will be $3 person, with children under 4 years old admitted free.
Space is limited to the first 50 paid admissions, said Carlie Brown, director of education at the zoo. No reservations are being taken.
At 6:30 p.m., visitors will watch the DisneyNature production, "Oceans," in the zoo’s Great Bend Raptor Center. "Oceans" was DisneyNature’s 2010 production, boasting state-of-the-art underwater filmmaking for "an unprecedented look beneath the sea." Popcorn and drinks will be provided. People are invited to bring a bean bag or lawn chair, or they may use one of the zoo’s metal chairs.
From 8-9 p.m., people can visit three stations for 20-minute activities: a guided tour of the zoo aquarium; "going green" tips and a game; and a craft activity. "We’re going to be making a ‘Save the Earth’ keychain," Brown said.
Proceeds from this event will go to the care of the animals. For more information contact Brown via e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 620-639-2248.
