About this Event

Lincoln Park Zoo’s top priority is the health and safety of our staff, guests, volunteers, and, of course, the animals in our care. It is our responsibility to do what we can to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Refund of your original order amount to the original payment method will be processed on Friday, April 10.

Although we are closed and many of our events have been cancelled, we are still providing state-of-the-art care to all the animals at the zoo each and every day. If you would like to support the zoo during this difficult time and make a real difference for your favorite species, please donate today!
