Wild About Earth Day


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Celebrate Earth Day at TCWR! Our education department has put together a variety of family-friendly activities that will get you feeling "wild" about protecting planet Earth!

(*There is no need to RSVP for these programs ahead of time.)

11:30 AM: "Plastic In The Food Chain"
Everything in an ecosystem is interconnected, and the ocean plays a vital role in the food web. When an ecosystem is polluted with plastic, the system becomes imbalanced and can cause extreme consequences for the entire world, not just the ocean. By learning about the problems associated with plastic pollution, we can come up with solutions to protect ourselves and the environment.

12:40: "How long does it take?"
Wildlife everywhere are in danger due to trash in our environment. Whether it is something small like a straw or something larger such as a tire, trash is hurting our wildlife. Join Wildlife Interpreter Beckie as we discover how long certain items stay in the environment and how you can help wildlife by reducing, reusing, and recycling.

2:20 PM: "Saving the Richest Places on Earth"
The most wildlife abundant places on Earth are also the most threatened. Humans depend on this biodiversity to survive. Join us at TCWR to learn about the richest places on the planet, and why we need to protect them.

3:40 PM: "Pollution Solution"
Earth provides everything that we need to survive, so it is our duty as humans to make sure we help and protect our planet for ourselves and every living species that we share Earth with. Join Wildlife Interpreter Beckie as we discover how we can help Earth and its residents every day in this family fun activity.
