Looking Back at Members-Only Morning

More than 700 Lincoln Park Zoo members and guests joined us August 10 for a beautiful Members-Only Morning. The north end of the zoo opened early just for members, offering a chance to wake up with animals including black rhinos, hyenas, meerkats and African wild dogs!

Attendees decorated the polar bear window, watched hyenas and meerkats enjoy special enrichment and talked with zoo endocrinologist Rachel Santymire, Ph.D., about how her research helps save black-footed ferrets and black rhinos. The first 50 attendees received a free gift...and everyone had a wonderful time!

The next Members-Only Morning will take place in spring 2014. Look for details in the coming months.
