Sunday Family Funday at Lincoln Park Zoo

Looking for something unique to do at the zoo with the whole family? Sunday Family Fundays provide an opportunity for the whole gang to learn new things about favorite zoo animals through hands-on activities and crafts, collaborative family challenges and fun, zoo-themed games. Each month, we will explore different zoo buildings and topics, so the experience is always new. Come play together at the zoo!

1–3 p.m.
Price per person: $10 ($8 for members)
For families with children of all ages (all participants 3 years and older must pay to participate)

February 23: Survival Skills (canceled)
What would you do if something was trying to eat you? Run? Hide? Play dead? Animals use these strategies and more to evade predators. Explore what makes some animals skilled hunters while others are built for getting away.

March 23: A Tail for Success (canceled)
Tails for balance, thumbs for holding and hooves for hiking—investigate how these adaptations give some animals the upper hand.
