Members Enjoy Exclusive Access to the Zoo!

Wake up with the zoo and see animals are you rarely can! Get a sneak peek at how keepers and the animals they care for—including tigers, black bears and otters—start their day. We’ll be providing zoo members with exclusive access to a large area of the zoo including the Pritzker Family Children’s Zoo, Regenstein Macaque Forest, Kovler Lion House, Kovler Sea Lion Pool and Main Mall. 

This fun, FREE event is open to all Lincoln Park Zoo members and is great for adults and families alike. No reservations are required—just show up with your member card and bring as many guests as you want to enjoy the fun. Thanks for your support!
