We are excited to welcome the families of our inaugural class of student researchers. We are inviting families of students who participated in the Partners in Fieldwork program with their school. Families will join Lincoln Park Zoo staff in learning more about the research conducted by field scientists in the zoo’s Urban Wildlife Institute.
Visit stations throughout the zoo to learn about ongoing research of Chicagoland wildlife. Researchers will share preliminary results of the data the students collected throughout the school year.
After meeting with our researchers, we will provide registrants with lunch and a time to mingle with other families and zoo staff. Enjoy the rest of the day by exploring Lincoln Park Zoo!
