Eco-Themed Enrichment for Earth Day Weekend

Come celebrate Earth Day with us at Lincoln Park Zoo! Join zoo educators in playing recycling games, observing animal enrichment, exploring sensory stations and making a pledge to positively impact the planet. Then embark on a conservation scavenger hunt to discover how zoo scientists are saving species and how you can help.

Get your conservation-scavenger-hunt handout from Gateway Pavilion for schedule and location details.
