Lincoln Park Zoo's Zoo-ologie:
Walk on the Wild Side

Saturday, May 12

Strut your stuff for wildlife at the Auxiliary Board of Lincoln Park Zoo's eighth annual signature fundraiser, Zoo-ologie: Walk on the Wild Side.

The event, which welcoms more than 1,000 guests to the zoo for a night of culinary creations, drinks, dancing and a silent auction, will have a new footprint this year. Guests can swing by the monkeys at Helen Brach Primate House and dance in an urban oasis on the tented Park Place Terrace. Also new this year is the Explorer Experience add-on, which will give guests access to VIP programming in Regenstein Small Mammal-Reptile House, including special tours, and much more!

All Zoo-ologie proceeds go toward the Auxiliary Board's commitment to supporting Lincoln Park Zoo's The Pride of Chicago campaign, which includes capital projects such as the new Searle Visitor Center, slated to open in late 2018.
