You're Invited to the Aquarium's "Party for the Planet"

We're looking forward to this year's Party for the Planet Earth Day celebration at the Tennessee Aquarium. This Saturday, April 24th from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm we'll have family fun and conservation information outside on the Aquarium Plaza and within both River Journey and Ocean Journey. Here are a few scenes from last year's event.

Face painting was very popular. Whether it was butterflies or penguins, every smile was a little bigger after these artists finished their work.

The plaza outside the Aquarium fills with people and conservation booths.

Animal Encounter specialist Lindsay Reynolds brought out a ball python for visitors to meet up close.

The day started off with the "Walk the Talk" cleanup. It was a lot of fun watching the youngsters picking up litter. They're learning valuable lessons about keeping the environment clean.

CUDA Club members made a splash during an underwater cleanup of the Tennessee River across from the Aquarium. It's amazing what the SCUBA divers bring up from the depths. Thanks to them, the waterway is much cleaner.

Party for the Planet is just plain fun! Catch a little bit of the flavor by watching this video from last year's event.

As we celebrate today the "Earth Day" may we start to get into habit the green lifestyle to show importance to our habitat. It's never too late, we can still preserve our mother nature.
