Plant It! at the Utica Zoo

Celebrate Spring at the Utica Zoo with a series of fun, planet-friendly programs. Engage in a fun, take-home project while you learn all about the plants and animals of a habitat. For ages 12 and up.

April 10: Succulents
Succulents are a type of plant that stores water in their leaves and stems. Found in warm, dry areas such as steppes and semi-dry deserts. Join us at the Utica Zoo to learn all about these amazing little plants, meet some desert animals, and plant a succulent to take home with you! Enjoy light snacks and socializing as well.

May 1: Air Plants
Air Plants are epiphytes, meaning plants that grow without dirt. Air Plants attach themselves to rocks, trees, shrubs, or the ground with their roots. They get their nutrients and moisture from the air. Make a fun planter for your air plant, meet a few rainforest animals and enjoy rainforest snacks!

May 22: Plants for Pollinators
Pollinators are vital to maintaining healthy ecosystems. Learn all about these vital animals and what you can do to help them. Plant an herb to bring home and attract pollinators to your own garden.
