Wetlands Exhibition

May 1989 – Permanent

Museum: National Zoo

Location: Near Bird House

On view are six  ponds—five different "environments" and a "courtship" pond—where local birds and plants common to wetlands are on view. Raised walkways meander among the ponds allowing visitors viewing access to the areas. Although no captive birds inhabit this area, it is a nice place to birdwatch. Colorful mallards and wood ducks often swim on the ponds and black-crowned night-herons can often be seen stalking the shallows.
