Fossil Rim Wildlife Center is gearing up for Memorial Day weekend and helping visitors go green and save a little green, too.

From May 23-May 25, visitors can bring one to nine cell phones or hand held games and accessories, working or not, and receive a $5 off coupon that can be used immediately.

For people with a lot of electronics to recycle, anyone who brings 10 or more cell phones or hand held games and their accessories will receive a free one-day family car pass. The pass will get two adults and two children in and can be used that day.

Phones and games can be brought to the admissions counter and exchanged for the coupons.

Fossil Rim is encouraging visitors to continue recycling even after the holiday weekend. Collection boxes will be available at the Visitor Center and Overlook area. Visit for more information about mailing your used items in for recycling.

While you’re at the Rim, stop by and wish Nick ‘Happy Birthday.’ Nick is an Electus Parrot who turns 18 on May 24. Two days later, the Rim will celebrate another birthday. Jack, a Moluccan Cockatoo at the Children’s Animal Center, turns 21 on May 26.
