For Immediate Release
Md. -- Approximately
3,000 people are expected to visit the Salisbury Zoo between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
on Saturday, April 25 to participate in the zoo's annual Earth Day celebration.
The Delmarva Power-sponsored event is designed to increase awareness of local
and international conservation and environmental concerns, and give people the
tools to take action. "Education without action doesn't really do much," said
Mary Seemann, the zoo's marketing and development associate.
Delmarva Power employees will be on
hand to distribute energy-saving information and demonstrate the energy- and
money-saving benefits of using compact fluorescent light bulbs. They also will
give out free American plum tree seedlings, tote bags, coloring books,
calendars, key chain lights and sunglasses, while supplies last.
For those who want to kick-start their
day on April 25, they can participate in the annual 5K Zoo Stampede at the
Salisbury Zoo. The popular running and walking event will begin at 9 a.m. with
proceeds benefiting the zoo.
For more information on Earth Day and
the Zoo Stampede, call 410-860-6880.
Support of Earth Day is just one way
in which Delmarva Power is committed to environmental stewardship. Another
signature environmental program for Delmarva Power is the company's longtime sponsorship
of Coastal Cleanup. That annual event attracts about 2,500 volunteers who take
time on a Saturday morning in September to pick up trash along riverbanks and
beaches in Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey.
