We offer our regular one-hour Weekend Chimposiums from March through November. The Chimposiums include a 30-minute presentation about the CHCI chimpanzees, free-living chimpanzee culture, and the current threats to free-living and captive chimpanzees. Each Chimposium features a 20-minute guided observation of the chimpanzees.
Saturdays: 10:45 am and 12:30 pm - Start Times - arrive early!
Sundays: 12:30 and 2:00 pm
Please Plan On Being at the Door at least 10 minutes before the Above Mentioned Times! On the Saturdays that we offer Advanced Chimposiums, we can only offer the 10:45 a.m. regular Chimposium. We do not offer Chimposiums on Easter Sunday, CWU Graduation Saturday (early June), and the Saturday of Labor Day weekend.
We highly recommend reservations. Sessions can fill up in advance, and are occasionally canceled if we do not meet the minimum number of reservations by the Friday afternoon prior to the weekend. Please call us before you plan to attend, to make sure that we are able to offer you a Chimposium.
For reservations, please visit our reservations page or call us at (509) 963-2244. We do not ship tickets to you - your confirmation email will be proof of purchase - we will have your name on file!
