Overview

Join Lincoln Park Zoo and the Chicago Park District for nature play days at a park near you! Play with natural items like stumps and seeds, brush up on your bird-watching or hiking skills, or venture out on a family scavenger hunt.

Events are open-house style with multiple stations, so stop by for a few minutes or stay the whole time. These are rain-or-shine events, so please dress for the weather.
