Party for the Planet

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) -- Alexandria threw a party Saturday with the earth in mind.

It's the "Party for the Planet."

The event is a chance for the zoo to raise awareness about environmental concerns, all while celebrating the beauty of the zoo.

Booths were set up as a way to make learning fun for kids. And, as families strolled through the zoo, they got a big reminder of the importance of protecting the planet for all creatures.

"Anything that you can do by getting involved in any organization that becomes important to you," said Amy Katz, Chair of "Party for the Planet." "You can recycle your cans or use cups that are recyclable. Whatever you can to lessen the footprints that we leave for the next generation."

"Party for the Planet" comes just in time for Earth Day which is April 22.
