The Beardsley Zoo held it's annual "Party for the Planet" on Saturday ahead of Earth Day.
Zoo visitors were able to snag free vegetables, tree and flower seeds to plant at home.
They also stopped at various tents for educational activities.
Some vendors took part by sharing their green efforts.
Parts of the Beardsley's event also consisted of volunteers cleaning up the Pequonock River.
Volunteers also picked up about 800 pounds of litter in the area of Beardsley Park.
"We want to inspire the young folks, we want to inspire the adults alike, and there was a lot of enthusiasm generated in the start of the morning to look at what we collected here and pulled out of the park," said Carolyn Rinaldi, associate curator of education at the Beardsley Zoo.
The zoo will hold another educational event on pollinators next Saturday April 27 to round out Earth Month events.
