Party with the Penguins

January 26 & 27, 2019

National Aviary


11 am - 3 pm | Included with admission

Visit the National Aviary to show your support for African Penguins, which are endangered in the wild. See a colony of penguins up close, make penguin-themed crafts, enjoy fun, educational activities and find out what you can do to help save penguins and other seabirds. Plus, watch an exciting penguin parade!

We're thrilled to be celebrating with Bette the penguin who recently recovered from abdominal surgery. Thanks to early detection and top-notch veterinary care, Bette is feeling great, and enjoying life in Penguin Point with her mate Sidney. She may even make an appearance in our penguin parade. And, show your support for penguins like Bette. Give today and your donation will be matched up to $5,000!
