Up to 50 individuals each day can sign up to help the Zoo clean up Beardsley Park—socially distanced, of course. The Zoo will supply gloves, trash bags, paper pickers and companionship: you bring your energy, face mask and desire to help clean up the earth! Families are welcome. As a thanks for being part of the clean-up crew, everyone who participates can enter the Zoo that day for the discounted price of $9 each.
