EARTH members receive free admission to Southwick’s Zoo
Proceeds from memberships support EARTH Limited. You may be wondering what EARTH Ltd is…
EARTH Ltd is a 501 (C) (3) nonprofit organization based in Mendon, MA. EARTH Ltd focuses on environmental education and their goal is to teach our community about topics including ecology, endangered species, and sustainability. You can visit EARTH’s website HERE.
EARTH’s home base is here at Southwick’s Zoo in the EARTH Discovery Center. Next time you stop by make sure you catch a live animal presentation or go inside to meet some of their animal ambassadors and talk to the staff!
…and why you should support EARTH Ltd
EARTH provides our zoo with a number of educational programs. Without EARTH Ltd, the zoo wouldn’t have live animal presentations, ZooMobiles, Spring and Summer Wild Adventure Programs, Jr ZooKeeping, or Rhino Encounters. We also wouldn’t have some very fun events such as EARTH Bash, EARTH Awareness Day, and Winos for Rhinos. Our interns and docents are also trained by EARTH staff.
EARTH also provides monetary support to other non-profits. For example in 2014 we focused on Rhino Conservation and raised funds for the International Rhino Foundation.
EARTH relies on proceeds from memberships. EARTH members receive free general admission to the zoo along with:
- 10% merchandise discount in the Purple Peacock Giftshop
- Discounts on Spring and Summer Wild Adventure Programs, Junior ZooKeeping, and Rhino Encounters.
- Invitations to members-only after hours events at the zoo (free for members and you can bring guests for an added fee)
- Discounts on other events
