Let’s celebrate this amazing planet we call home! Party for the Planet celebrates Earth Day at John Ball Zoo, where community partners engage with guests and encourage them to learn how to take positive action to help save native habitats for wildlife. Be sure to catch all of the entertainment, animal programs, and plant giveaways along the way! 
Become a Wildlife Explorer! 
Welcome to our Wildlife Exploration Days! Once a month join John Ball Zoo for a unique opportunity to celebrate Earth’s biodiversity and learn how to take action to make a difference. 
When you arrive, grab your Wildlife Explorer Passport. With your passport in hand, make your way to our Exploration Stations where you can learn more about animals, engage with interactive activities, and collect a badge for your passport. Each badge collected is an opportunity to enter to win prizes! Attend all of our Wildlife Exploration Days to complete your passport.
