Turn Your Scraps Into Sculptures And Win!

Create a masterpiece out of your household scraps and enter the Scraps To Sculptures contest. On Saturday, April 11 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. the sculptures you have created out of everyday scraps will be on display during the Zoo's Earth Day celebration, Party for the Planet. 

To enter, just bring your sculpture to Guest Relations between 9 am and 5 pm on Friday, April 10. You will receive 2 free admissions for Saturday, April 11.
