Reminder: DC Area Zoo Outing

September will be here before we know it, so we wanted to post a reminder about the upcoming outing at the National Zoo. For DC area families, and anyone else who is able to join, we plan on having a great day of fun and fellowship. The details are below. Hope to see you there!

Date: Saturday, September 28 (rain date: Oct 5)

Time: 10 am – 2 pm

Cost: $25 per family for lunch (sandwich, chips, drink, and fruit provided by the zoo) and gift for each child

Getting there: The zoo has limited parking, at our group rate of $16. It is also located in between two metro stops on the red line- Cleveland Park and Woodley Park-Zoo. The address is: 3001 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20008

Where to meet: In front of the Visitor Center along Olmstead Walk at 10 a.m. Look for an America World sign.

We’ll eat a picnic lunch together at noon, and the rest of the day will be unstructured. You are welcome to fellowship in large or small groups while enjoying the zoo exhibits!
