John Ball Zoo director, Bert Vescolani spent the morning with me in the Channel 957 studio to talk about all of the amazing animals, sea creatures, reptiles and birds that live at the zoo in Grand Rapids AND to personally invite you to their annual Party For The Planet event on Saturday!

Festivities begin at 10 a.m. through 3 p.m. and you can either drop off all of your recyclables (cell phones, t.v.’s, etc.), shop the 25 booths that will be set-up in the parking lot, and spend the afternoon with your kids inside the zoo.  There will be other events like face painting and an area where you can touch and learn about all the animals. 

Listen to my full interview with Mr. Vescolani here:
