Description: Celebrate Earth Day with the animals at the Zoo's Fifth Annual Party for the Planet. Talk to local conservation ambassadors to hear what they're doing to help the environment and learn how you can help, too. The zoo also hosts its annual -- and very popular -- Sheep Shearing. The zoo's sheep get their annual haircut at 11am. Arrive early for a view of this popular event. Related artifacts including a spinning wheel, knitting, and wool-dyeing will be on display in the farmyard.
