FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- The Fort Wayne Children's Zoo celebrates Earth Day and asks guests to make a "Go Green" pledge.

Saturday was opening day for the Zoo's 48th season. And on Sunday, Zoo officials are making a call to action. the Party for the Planet is to teach guests how to conserve energy, recycle and help our planet. And the prize at the end of the afternoon is worth going green.

From 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. kids can hop from one activity station to the next in order to test their knowledge of Earth trivia, solve riddles about endangered and common species in an “I Spy” game, have their picture taken with a Sumatran Tiger portrait and learn how to save money by going green in a Price is Right-inspired game.

Families that complete all activities by 3 p.m. will receive a prize. Kids who make a pledge to go green will receive wildflower seeds to plant at home!

Visitors can donate old cell phones to be recycled at the Welcome Station when they arrive. All Party for the Planet activities are free with zoo admission.
