Earth Agents 2020

Become an environmental change agent in your community!

Fall 2020

All Ages

Many people feel that they have a limited ability to affect real change when it comes to environmental issues at home and abroad. The truth is, we all have the ability to make change. As an Earth Agent family, you will be given the tools, knowledge, and support to become change agents in your community.

10 families (we'll let you define that word) will be selected as Earth Agent families and will plan and host an event in their community to inspire others to participate in saving the planet.

There is no fee to join the Earth Agents, but families are expected to attend a kick-off event at the Zoo and to organize and host an event in their community in the Fall.  That community can be friends, neighbors, a church group – however you define it! Oakland Zoo will provide everything needed to get started (shirts, give away items, a small stipend to help run your event, and more!)

We are no longer accepting applications at this time.

For Earth Agent Families:

• November 8 to November 15: plan project and finalize idea

• November 16 to December 8: carry out your neighborhood healthy habitat project with help from our Oakland Zoo team.

• December 8 to 12: Celebrate your success by sharing photos, videos and reflections from your project, receive your Earth Agents official t-shirts and swag.

• Upon project completion, receive a special access behind the scenes pass for your chosen date in January to visit Oakland Zoo as a VIP Earth Agent.
