Join the Auxiliary Board of Lincoln Park Zoo as the zoo comes out of hibernation! Celebrate the zoo’s reopening with fire-toasted s’mores, trivia and prizes, and special animal enrichment! Get access by making a reservation on February 28 or purchasing a Beers & Bears Celebration Pack today! Either way, you’ll support wildlife and help keep the zoo free and open to all.

If you can’t attend the reopening or purchase a Celebration Pack, you can still help cover the impact of COVID-19 on Lincoln Park Zoo and support the zoo’s operating expenses by making a donation.


Enjoy special activities on Saturday, March 6, including:

  • Animal Enrichment: Watch your favorite species play, crunch, crush, and chomp special enrichment delivered to their habitat throughout the day.
  • Fire Pits and S’mores
  • Animal Videos: Scan a QR code to learn about the animals at Lincoln Park Zoo while cozied up to the fire.
  • Trivia & Prizes: Listen for trivia questions broadcast across the zoo and give your answer at the Gift Shop. First correct answer wins a prize!
