Dedicate an Auditorium Seat

The Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute’s auditorium has a new look, and you’re invited to take a seat!

For a limited time, you have the opportunity to honor a special person or acknowledge a loved one with a personalized nameplate on the seat of your choice — all while showing support for the Zoo’s mission to save species. The auditorium, located at the Zoo, is an important space for public education and wildlife conservation programming. 

Pick your seat! Nameplates are available in tax-deductible levels of $150, $300 and $500, depending on the location of the seat.

Once you select your seat and finish your purchase you will be directed to a form to enter the text for the nameplate. Nameplates will remain for five years after purchase.

Please note that your seat naming designation is not a seat reservation for programming in the auditorium.
