Celebrate the Earth Day Weekend with us at the Brookfield Zoo’s Party for the Planet!

“Every day is Earth Day at Brookfield Zoo, but on this very special day we will be showcasing some of the steps you can commit to that will truly make a difference for animals across the globe! Visit the Eco Expo featuring Earth friendly vendors, drop off recycling, enjoy live entertainment, plant a tree, and enjoy green activities and crafts. We will have special Zoo Chats on giraffe’s (the featured animal for this year’s Party for the Planet and Zoo Run Run). Party for the Planet will be filled with educational, engaging, and fun activities for the entire family.”

C2ST will have a “Ask a Scientist” booth set up at Party for the Planet where you can talk to Chicago scientists about the Earth, energy research, sustainability and environmental science.

Our thanks to the Summer Institute on Sustainability and Energy (SISE) at UIC for their help in recruiting our scientist volunteers.

Meet our scientists!
