A Visit to Lincoln Park Zoo: The New Lion House

Wednesday, October 13 - 10:30 am - 11:30 am

The Lincoln Park Zoo has some new residents – African lions! The Zoo is opening their newly renovated lion house that will be the home for not only a pride of lions, but Canadian lynx, snow leopards and red pandas. You can learn all about how this historical lion house was reconfigured to create an expansive new habitat to house these carnivores.

Bill Green, accessibility and inclusion manager at the zoo, tells us all about the features of the lion’s new home, now renamed the Pepper Family Wildlife Center. You’ll also learn about the conservation efforts Lincoln Park Zoo is doing with wild lions in Tanzania.

Join us on our virtual visit to Lincoln Park Zoo’s new lion house and learn about:

  • the architectural restoration and renovation of this historical Chicago landmark
  • the environmental features of the new savanna habitat
  • the ingenious zip lines that bring food to the carnivores

Come join us to explore this treasure in the middle of Chicago! Call the conference line at 312-809-1004. For questions, email Kathy Austin.
