Easter Monday & Earth Optimism Celebration

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.

Visitors, please note that due to increased visitation during spring break, security screening measures will be implemented at all Zoo entry points. Screening prior to entry includes but is not limited to all bags, backpacks, personal items and strollers. Visitors who exit the Zoo must participate in security screening before re-entry is permitted. Zoo entry wait times are possible during the spring break period. Thank you in advance for your patience, cooperation and assistance in keeping everyone safe.
