Story Time Needs Your Help

The annual budget for Story Time (one of the zoo’s most popular programs for young families) is $15,000. As with every free program, continued philanthropic support is necessary every year to maintain the twice-weekly program. Story Time is currently funded through January, 12. It will conclude unless funding is secured. We ask that you consider making a gift to support this fun, innovative and free zoo program. Donations can be made in person at the zoo’s Gateway Pavilion or mailed to Lincoln Park Zoo, 2001 N. Clark Street, Chicago, IL 60614, Attention: Story Time.
