Warm Weather & Birthday Wishes

How about this weather! As the thermometer registered spring temperatures today, the animals took full advantage. The polar bear was swimming, flamingos were flapping their wings and chimpanzees and gorillas explored their outdoor yards. Tomorrow is also supposed to be unseasonably mild—join us to see who else is out and about.

Lincoln Park Zoo closes its fiscal year 2011 on March 31. Please consider supporting the zoo’s Annual Fund to help us end our year strong, visit www.lpzoo.org/support.


Finally, we’re celebrating former Lincoln Park Zoo Director Dr. Lester Fisher’s 90th birthday on February 24. Please join us at Regenstein Center for African Apes at 10:30 a.m. to sign a huge card and watch the apes join the fun with piñata “cakes” and “presents” stuffed with treats. Les has been an inspiration for generations of Chicagoans—I’m excited about helping him celebrate this milestone.


As always, I’ll keep you posted.
