EARTH Ltd. open house at Southwick's Zoo Saturday

MENDON, Mass. - On Saturday, April 5, EARTH Limited will be hosting an open house at the entrance of Southwick's Zoo, from noon to 3 p.m.

The public will have a chance to learn more about EARTH - Environmental Awareness of Resources and Threatened Habitats - as well as become a member to support its new renovation project at the zoo. Meet some educational animals, including Rufus the red kangaroo joey, up close and personal. Light refreshments will also be served. New memberships, as well as membership renewals, will be offered at last year's rate to those who attend the event. A membership includes access to members-only events, unlimited visits to Southwick's Zoo for one year, and discounts on summer programs and the gift shop.

"EARTH Limited operates inside Southwick's Zoo, but it's a separate, nonprofit organization that works to educate the community about environmental issues we are passionate about. We wouldn't be able to do this without the support of our members," said Betsey Brewer, executive director.
