Earth Optimism on Easter Monday

Mark your calendars for Earth Optimism on Easter Monday on April 13, 2020. Take a look at last year's highlights below, and check back soon for 2020 event details.

This year it's double the fun, as the Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute's Easter Monday event coincides with Earth Day and the Zoo's Earth Optimism celebration.

From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., families are invited to enjoy egg hunts, live music, food trucks and games while discovering how they can help save species. This free event includes hands-on learning opportunities featuring Smithsonian conservation success stories, special animal demonstrations, keeper talks, and meet and greets with scientists and conservation partners working to protect wildlife around the world.
