Brookfield Zoo is collaborating with Autism Speaks to take part in the annual Zoo Goes Blue campaign!
The event takes place at select Association of Zoos and Aquariums accredited facilities across North America during April, which is World Autism Awareness Month. To commemorate the day, the zoo’s iconic lion statues will be clothed in blue scarves and blue flags will decorate the park’s grounds. Throughout the day, special Zoo Goes Blue activities will be taking place for families with children on the autism spectrum, including a quiet hour on the Carousel, a sensory-friendly Dolphins in Action presentation, and special animal Zoo Chats. For more information, call (708) 688-8000.
