Celebrate Gardens With Us

If the thousands of tulips blooming on grounds aren't enough to lure you to Lincoln Park Zoo this weekend, Saturday is National Public Gardens Day, when we celebrate the green spaces we share. We'll be creating "seed surprises" used in guerilla (not gorilla!) gardening. These are mixtures of seeds, compost and clay that can be tossed into difficult sites to help green up the city. Join us at The Patio at Café Brauer Saturday between 10 a.m.-2 p.m. for this free activity.

Wild Outreach

Alex Gallegos, Lincoln Park Zoo's manager of community outreach, attended Children's Day at Harrison Park in Pilsen this weekend, where he educated kids about gorilla physiology by comparing tracings of their hands to the big apes'. Gallegos strives to broaden the zoo's appeal by conducting outreach to communities around the city. In short, he brings a little bit of the zoo to the people in the hopes of prompting them to visit the zoo.
