Start your day surrounded by nature at Breakfast with the Animals! These unique virtual events consist of talks about the zoo’s inhabitants by the zoo experts who care for them. August 9: Lincoln Park Zoo veterinarians are available 24/7 to care for everything from 3,000-pound black rhinos to geckos the size of a one-carat diamond -- and each of them require the same standard of care and veterinary ingenuity! Join Dr. Kathryn Gamble, Dr. Lester E. Fisher Director of Veterinary Medicine, and her staff as they share the challenges and successes of caring for the largest and smallest creatures across the zoo! September 20: Back by popular demand! In 2019, two western lowland gorillas were born at the zoo’s Regenstein Center for African Apes: Mondika (mon-dee-kah) on May 12 and Djeke (jek-ay) on June 12. Their arrival, while adorable, was only possible thanks to the dedication of our Animal Care staff and the quality of our science, which continues to guide both infants today—as they grow, play, and climb! Following the meet-and-greet, you will have the opportunity to ask moderated questions about your favorite animals, live from home! The format of this event will be a short introduction, followed by an approximate 20-minute presentation and conclude with an approximate 10-minute Q&A. As a reminder, 100% of revenue received from tickets purchased support Lincoln Park Zoo’s state-of-the-art animal initiatives, worldwide conservation efforts, and local education programs. [less-]

Here is your opportunity to have some fun playing our live "New Girl" trivia game. This is a single player game. You will also get to socialize and make other friends from the safety and comfort of your home. Prize will be an Amazon gift card, free future events and maybe some others. This event will be held in a Zoom Virtual Room, which you would access through your computer and webcam, or via your smartphone/tablet. During the game we will virtually introduce you to some of the other participants (if for any reason you are not interested in meeting the other participants, you can opt out of this part). At game time, your host will read off several trivia questions from "New Girl". Your goal is to come up with the correct answer to each question and write it down on your paper. Once the round is over (about 6 questions), we will go through the answers and determine which person/people had the highest score for the round. That person/people will get a raffle ticket for a chance to win a prize at the end of the event. We will play multiple rounds so each time you win a round, you will earn another raffle entry. Additional fees may apply. For events with a discounted price, no coupon or promo code is necessary to purchase tickets. [less-]

All too often forgotten is the reason behind asana (postures) -- the ability to sit in meditation. We exist in a demanding world where multi-tasking and overbooking ourselves is expected. The pace of life leaves us not only physically exhausted but with a busy, cluttered state of mind. Through the practice of meditation, we can begin to bring awareness to the “busy” and detach from emotional holdings related to past events or anxiety for the future. Practicing mindfulness allows us to more readily access this state of being regardless of what is going on around us. Hilaire will help us focus on techniques to flip this dark, lethargic energy to lightness and laughter. We will spend time discussing why we find ourselves being so heavy and the choice we have to effectively pull ourselves out of the rabbit hole. No prior meditation experience is necessary, all levels welcome. [less-]

The ability to arm balance goes far beyond strong arms and a strong core. While they can be mystifying and scary, when approached correctly, they are exhilarating, empowering and fun!

Hilaire will guide students through a sequence that will prepare the foundation necessary to do these poses with ease and freedom. This class is for those challenged by arm balances and for those who love them! In working towards our potential in these poses, we empower ourselves physically, mentally, and emotionally by cultivating inner confidence and trust. All levels welcome! [less-]
