EARTH Awareness Day

Visit Southwick’s Zoo on Saturday, August 5th for a day of learning and family fun! EARTH Awareness Day, which is always held on the first Saturday in August, is used to help promote conservation issues through special presentations, guests, and displays. Our interns will also have their research projects on display throughout the zoo. Activities are included with the zoo’s normal admission rates, and this event is free for members of EARTH!
