Pelican Name Reveal Celebration

Thursday, March 14

National Aviary

March 14 | 11am - 1 pm
included with admission

Join us for a special celebration as we unveil the name of our new female Brown Pelican! See the new pelican in our Wetlands habitat, enjoy a sweet treat, a pelican talk, a coloring activity, and more.

What will it be?

  • Eloise, or "Elli the Peli" for short, inspired by the elegant yet slightly awkward nature of pelicans
  • Dee Dee, named after Dexter's sister in the children's cartoon Dexter's Laboratory and is a tribute to one of the National Aviary's former pelicans named Dexter 
  • Morada because this pelican was found in the town of Islamorada, Florida
Thank you to all who voted on TribLIVE! The poll is closed, and the name of our new Brown Pelican will be revealed on March 14th at the National Aviary!
