Resources for Educators

Welcome to Lincoln Park Zoo! We are proud to serve teachers and educators in Chicagoland and beyond. We strive to provide science-based information and activities, from field trips to internships, to help nurture a love of nature and inspire conservation action.

Please note: We try to accommodate as many requests for information and interviews as possible. Unfortunately, we cannot arrange interviews with zoo keepers or veterinarians. Check out our social channels to meet keepers, discover species, and more.
