Spring Into Action


Join Blank Park Zoo, Polk County Conservation and Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation as we work together to restore Iowa’s woodland flora. Invasive plant species put pressure on our native woodlands and we need your help in restoring this habitat. When we remove invasive plants we are helping our native plants and wildlife to flourish, plus the animals at the Zoo have the opportunity to enjoy a treat! Honeysuckle, an invasive plant, is one the favorites of animals in our care! Spring into Action on May 18 to celebrate Endangered Species Day through woodland conservation efforts at Fort Des Moines Park. Come and go as you please between 10:00am – 12:00pm. All ages are welcomed to join us for this event.
