Meet a Mammal

On March 3—World Wildlife Day—Friends of the National Zoo members will be able to celebrate by meeting some new friends at the Small Mammal House, up close and personal!

From 4 to 5 p.m., members can take part in Meet a Mammal, a free event that will feature several of the Small Mammal House's charismatic animals on the other side of their habitat. Members will be able to chat with keepers who work with the animals every day—after the house closes to the public.

This is event has limited capacity and is first-come, first-served, so please arrive early. No tickets are necessary, but membership cards will be checked. The animals that members can see will be determined on the day of the event.

We're excited to see you on March 3!
