The Wild Animal Sanctuary hosts its Wild Earth Day celebration on Sunday, April 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission to the festival is FREE. The day features a celebration with arts, crafts, vendors and food. The Sanctuary provides safe, natural habitats for more than 450 carnivores rescued from inhumane conditions. If you want to see the animals, bring a potted tree or shrub to donate for FREE admission to its Sanctuary Walkway.
These beautiful animals were born in captivity and therefore cannot be released into the wild they never knew. The Sanctuary specifically requests cottonwood trees, Eastern red cedar, lilac bushes and sand cherries.
Staff will utilize donated plants to embellish the 60+ habitats. The day features a celebration with arts, crafts and food vendors. Each person who brings a plantable tree or bush (we’re talking something sizeable, not a seedling or sapling) will be granted FREE admission to the Sanctuary walkway.
Visitors will also receive a FREE custom “Earth Day” bookmark with special removable bear that has beautiful flower seeds inside.
Regular admission to the Sanctuary is $30 for adults and $15 for children.
