BBQ for Bonobos, next Sunday, Aug. 9th!

Join the Bonobo Conservation Initiative for food and fun in Washington’s beautiful Rock Creek Park on Sunday, August 9th from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The cost is $10 per person and includes food & beverage (vegetarian option available); all proceeds benefit BCI’s mission to protect the bonobo, an endangered great ape, and its rainforest habitat. We are also asking guests to bring a dessert to donate for our bake sale.

Activities at the event will include face painting, balloon animals, masks, puzzles, outdoor games, Congolese music, special appearance by an ape character, and guest speakers from BCI USA and Australia and arctic explorer who took our flag to the North Pole!

Just follow signs and balloons to Rock Creek Park Picnic Area #2 on Beach Rd. past the Peirce Mill waterfall. See flyer for map. Closest Metro stop is Van Ness. Parking is also available.

Hope to see you there! Please share with friends, family, and colleagues.
