Celebrate Earth Day 2017 at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay

Visit Busch Gardens Tampa Bay on Saturday, April 22 for our annual Earth Day event! Learn about animals, nature, and how you can make an impact on the world around you. Meet the keepers and learn about gorillas, cheetahs, lions and orangutans while they enjoy Earth Day-themed treats. Plus, learn about some of Busch Gardens’ special projects like composting and recycling, the Rising Tide Conservation project and the Tampa Bay Watch Oyster Restoration project.

Want to know how you can help? Bring in a cell phone to recycle and learn how it can save gorillas. As a thank you, guests who donate will receive a voucher to feed a kangaroo or lorikeet. Come for the Earth Day celebration and stay for the Food and Wine Festival and the concert after!
