One way the Zoo is following its mission of environmental conservation is by only offering candy from companies that are a part of the Roundtable of Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). In addition to the stations presented by the Zoo, local businesses and organizations will be set up so children can trick-or-treat at the specific locations. Games, arts and crafts, a haystack hunt ($1 fee) and a child-friendly haunted house in the Florida Pioneer House will entertain young visitors. Children can also purchase a pumpkin to decorate on-site at a pumpkin patch. All funds raised will go toward the care and feeding of the Zoo’s animals. The Zoo is inviting local businesses and organizations to participate in “Boo at the Zoo.” For more information, vendors can email info@palmbeachzoo.org.
