Meaningful Experiences Boost Animal Education

In educating visitors about animals, we create multiple opportunities for visitors of all ages and backgrounds to have meaningful experiences at the zoo. We invite you to feel connected, committed and curious in our wild classroom.

At 11 a.m., Lincoln Park Zoo educator Matt Mulligan will demonstrate the Observe to Learn app developed by the zoo’s Hurvis Center for Learning Innovation and Collaboration. This free, award-winning app lets users monitor animal behavior much as zoo scientists do.
