Join us with your families for a day at the zoo on us, as we close out the first half of the 2019 meeting season with this family outing to the Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange. Our Chair, Dr. Thelma Manning, P.E. invites you to spend the day at the zoo, and have lunch on us.

Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange, NJ is part of the South Mountain Recreation Complex situated on 20 acres in the South Mountain Reservation. It is part of the Essex County Park System, the oldest county park system in the United States. Founded in 1963, the zoo was originally a showcase for animals indigenous to New Jersey, but currently features species from every continent except Antarctica. As of 2016, it houses approximately 1,400 animals, including several hundred birds in a free-flight aviary.

NOTE: There are a limited number of free-admission wristbands available, so please register for this event as soon as possible. Free-admission wristbands will be distributed when you check-in with AIChE, at the Zoo entrance.
