The Detroit Zoo will host GreenFest to celebrate Earth Day and educate Zoo visitors about environmental conservation.
GreenFest will feature a sustainability tour highlighting the Detroit Zoological Society’s green efforts, including discussions regarding the anaerobic digester and permeable pavement. Activities will include chemistry demos, worm composting education, zookeeper talks and more. Additionally, an art exhibition by Art Road Nonprofit will be unveiled during the event, displaying Great Lakes plastic pollution in a thought-provoking manner.
GreenFest is an initiative of the Detroit Zoological Society’s Greenprint, a comprehensive strategic plan to refine and improve facilities and daily practices, develop new policies and programs and improve green literacy in the community.
