Cape May County Earth Day Celebration at the Park & Zoo

4-17 Earth day at the zoo pic

On Saturday, April 20, 2019, Cape May County Park & Zoo will co-host its Annual Earth Day Celebration with the Cape May County MUA.  It is the largest Earth Day event in Cape May County every year and plans for more local and global environment friendly exhibitors than ever before.  Participants will be onsite to help visitors learn ways to be more eco-friendly and save wildlife, animals, plants and pollinator species.

The winner of the Cape May County Earth Day Celebration Logo Contest, sponsored by the Cape May County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Park and Zoo, will also have her work shown during this event. The logo contest, held annually to commemorate the county’s Earth Day Celebration, was themed this year as “Protect All Species”. The first-place design, which will be featured on the official Earth Day T-shirt, was entered by Odalys Mendoza from Cape May County Technical School.

This year special guests will include Captain America, Wonder Woman and Spiderman as they encourage kids of all ages to come out for their amazing “Superhero Training” and learn how they can “Save Planet Earth!”

The awesome day planned begins with a 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk and 5K Race at 8:30am.  Registration opens at 7:30 am and your donation of $25 goes to support the Zoo and its animal conservation programs.

Highlights for the day include Yoga led by instructor Karen Manette-Bosna, Story Time with the Cape May County Library, Superhero Training, Trivia and Games, Nature Walks through the Park, Music all day by Master DJ & Sound. The ever popular Drum Circle will end the day with earthy vibes.

Along with food vendors, Mad Dog Morgan and Pirate Pete’s Soda, the field will offer some of the finest crafters and their trinkets for perusal.  Inflatables and a photo booth will be on hand for more free fun for the kids.

Join us for a day of interactive learning and animal inspired fun from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 20 at Cape May County Park & Zoo, 707 Route 9 North, Cape May Court House.  For more information on this and other events sponsored by the Board of Chosen Freeholders at the Cape May County Park & Zoo, please visit
