Held at the Innis Arden Cottage, Greenwich Point Park, Old Greenwich, CT.Official Earth Day Month Kick-off at 1:30 pm. Two 30-minute family programs with live mammals take place at 1:45 pm and 2:30 pm. Meet live Animal Ambassadors representing a diversity of habitats from around the globe! We’ll explore the softer side of nature with a diversity of small mammals that wear a fur coat suited to their home and, like us, take care of their offspring to teach them all the things they need to know. Get up close to Animal Ambassadors such as South American Chinchillas, a Lionhead Rabbit, an African Hedgehog and an Australian Sugar Glider. At 3:15 pm hear from Top to Top Global Climate Expedition, featuring the Swiss family sailing the globe and scaling the highest peaks on all continents to inspire climate change action.
