Posts from the President

Hi everybody. I’ll be making periodic posts to provide you a unique perspective on Lincoln Park Zoo and my work as the president and CEO. So here goes…
The Patio at Café Brauer opened over the Memorial Day weekend and crowds dined and drank in this newest place to relax at the zoo. (Once Nature Boardwalk opens on June 24 the view from the Patio will be breathtaking. Stop by for a beer or a glass of wine.)
It was nice to see visitors this weekend gushing over the European white stork chicks and the newly hatched cinereous vulture. If you haven’t yet seen them, you’re missing out.

Sleep Under the Skyscrapers

Who said hiking along the water and camping in tents was just for the wilderness? The new Nature Boardwalk at Lincoln Park Zoo provides the perfect setting for your family to explore an urban ecosystem at night. Take a hike, explore the wildlife that enlivens this area and enjoy a pizza dinner. Pitch your tent on the South Lawn and sleep under the skyscrapers, then wake to the morning songs of birds. The July Sleep Under the Skyscrapers has sold out. Registration for the August 6-7 session is open. Click here to learn more or to register.
