MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Zoo staff will be present to teach visitors about recycling, preservation, and conservation, and how these practices make the planet a beautiful and healthy place. Visitors can also make an Earth Day Safari keepsake at the craft station. 

Zoo keepers will also hold talks about many of the animals in the Montgomery Zoo, at the exhibits for each. The schedule of the talks is below:

Tuesday
