    The Smithsonian’s National Zoo is part of the Smithsonian Institution, the world’s largest museum and research complex. Founded in 1889, the zoo sits on 163 acres in the heart of Washington, D.C.’s Rock Creek Park and is home to 2,700 animals representing more than 390 species. In addition, the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute plays a leading role in the Smithsonian’s global efforts to save wildlife species from extinction and train future generations of conservationists.

    Join your colleagues for a guided tour of the Smithsonian National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute, which are a short walk from the main conference hotel. After the tour ends, we will gather for a family-style lunch at Mama Ayesha’s, a local restaurant. This field trip will take place regardless of the weather, so participants are advised to dress appropriately.

    Meet at 9 am in the main lobby of Marriott Wardman Park Hotel by the Concierge Desk to walk or Uber/taxi to the National Zoo for the field trip. Bus transportation is not provided.

    AALS now follows PCI Data Compliance Standards. We can accept your payment for the field trip up to 24 hours in advance, but in order to meet standards, we will not be selling tickets on the day of the field trip. Participants will need to sign a waiver of liability to participate in this off-site field trip.
