HOW TO GET TO THE CALIFORNIA STATE SOCIETY SUMMER PICNIC
We have put together some important information to help you find your way to our new location, Lion-Tiger Hill at the National Zoo. Public transportation is strongly encouraged. You can also find information at
Lion-Tiger Hill is located near the Rock Creek entrance. A map of the National Zoo is provided in this link: https://nationalzoo.si.edu/sites/default/files/documents/zoo-map-print-out-dinos-green_compliant.pdf
From the Woodley Park Metro station on the RED LINE take the escalator to Connecticut Avenue. Look
for the CSS volunteers with signage who will direct you to the shuttle. A complimentary shuttle courtesy of Edison International will be provided to and from the picnic. The shuttle will run a continuous loop from the Woodley Park Metro to the Zoo Farm beginning at 10:45am with the last pickup from the Zoo Farm back to the Metro at 4:30pm.
Look for National Zoo and Harvard Street Bridge. This is the closest drop zone to the Rock Creek entrance. IMPORTANT NOTE: Lyft has offered a discounted ride share for the day of the picnic.
