Baltimore/DC Clemson Club – Tigers United at The National Zoo’s Great Cats Exhibit

Tigers United at The National Zoo’s Great Cats Exhibit

June 11, 2022
5:30 – 7:30pm

With Dr. Brandie Smith, Director of the Smithsonian’s National Zoo, and the Tiger Keepers

The tiger runs deep through Clemson’s history.  It’s a symbol of our pride and our passion and at the heart of our pursuit for excellence.  Yet, tigers in the wild are in danger.  According to best estimates, there are fewer than 3,900 tigers remaining in the wild and they face an uncertain future.  The Tigers United University Consortium, founded by President Jim Clements, is committed to preserving and protecting tiger populations.

On Saturday, June 11, the Baltimore/DC Clemson Club will raise awareness for this important cause at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo in Washington, DC.  Guests will have the opportunity to meander around the expansive Great Cats Exhibit while interacting with the Tiger Keepers.  In addition to answering questions, the Keepers will talk about the two Tiger species at the Zoo, Sumatran and Amur, and conduct feeding demonstrations with frozen oxtails.

The evening also includes a reception on Lion-Tiger Hill where the National Zoo’s Director, Dr. Brandie Smith, who earned an M.S. in zoology from Clemson, will welcome guests and make brief remarks.  Catered by the highly acclaimed La Prima Catering, the reception will feature a delicious selection of hors d’oeuvres and white wine sangria.  Many thanks to La Prima for being an event sponsor.

Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind event – having exclusive access to the Great Cats Exhibit and Tiger Keepers is truly a rare opportunity!

Registration is $55 for Club Member adults and $49 for children (under 12). Non-member registration is $75 for adults and $59 for children. Clemson Club Members may register for up to 4 member tickets even if the guests are not Clemson alumni or Club Members.
