The Alligator Farm Celebrates Party for the Planet

The St. Augustine Alligator Farm is proud to announce its participation in Party for the Planet, a collaborative effort involving over 130 AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums across North America. This event will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., April 20, 2024, and marks the largest combined celebration of Earth Day, Endangered Species Day and World Oceans Day.

“We are thrilled to be part of this initiative,” says Gen Anderson, General Curator at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm and Zoological Park. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to engage our visitors in conservation efforts and promote awareness about environmental issues.”

Thanks to a generous sponsorship from AZA, The Alligator Farm has received $5,000 to support its conservation activities. The event will feature a range of activities, including educational booths, animal ambassador presentations and native plant gardening.

“We believe that small changes can make a big difference,” Anderson continued. “By connecting our visitors to meaningful conservation actions, we hope to inspire positive change in our communities.”

Certified by the Florida Wildflower Foundation and National Wildlife Federation, The Alligator Farm invites attendees to participate in planting native species to enhance the growth of the Camp Croc Wildflower Garden. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with staff and community partners while learning about the importance of wildlife habitats.

Admission is included with regular park entry. Location: The Camp Croc Wildflower Garden at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. To register or for more information, visit
