Members-Only Morning

Members-Only Morning—Free!

South Side Early Bird Special

Nearly 500 Lincoln Park Zoo members celebrated a beautiful spring day with a special Members-Only Morning! The south end of the zoo opened early just for members, giving them a chance to see animals like never before.

Members got a sneak peak at how keepers and animals—including monkeys, gorillas, kangaroos and zebras—start their day. They watched Bactrian camels being fed, lowland gorillas being introduced and Sichuan takins ripping apart piñata enrichment. Kids helped decorate a primate exhibit window, built forts next to chimpanzees and sprang into action to test their kangaroo-worthy jumping skills. Members even got to help name a kangaroo joey!
