FONZ 60th Celebration

Join Friends of the National Zoo for a celebration 60 years in the making!

Enjoy fun treats throughout the day on June 30, as Friends of the National Zoo commemorates six decades of supporting the critical conservation work of the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute.

Even the Zoo residents are celebrating! Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., animals will receive themed enrichment, including a very special fruitsicle ice cake for the elephants at 11 a.m.

Join the birthday festivities and celebrate 60 years of friendship! Consider making a donation of $60 or more in honor of our birthday so we can do even more to help the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute save species.
