Description

Learn what the Zoo is doing to help these iconic pollinators and how you can help. Monarch butterflies are essential pollinators which have now been classified as an endangered species whose population has decreased dramatically in the last 20 years due to habitat loss and use of pesticides. Families can take part in a variety of activities including learning how to plant a pollinator garden, participating in Monarch Watch’s community science monarch tagging project, assisting with planting a pollinator garden in the Zoo, free milkweed plants and pollinator seed packs while supplies last, storytime, Facebook Lives and more.

Zoo guests will enjoy free entry to BRICKLIVE Animal Paradise on Saturday, September 10. Monarch Awareness Day activities will be happening around the Zoo’s pollinator garden and carousel; all are free with regular admission.

The festival also features a plant sale offering a variety of native pollinator plants available for purchase from Oklahoma nurseries in the Zoo’s Entry Plaza from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., admission is not required for this activity.
