Welcome to the LEAP Program

Lincoln Park Zoo’s LEAP: Learn, Explore, And Play program provides opportunities for young children to explore the natural world by meeting animals, building, drawing, climbing and making music. Play in nature engages all our senses at once. It helps us learn how to problem-solve, fosters creativity and helps us concentrate. When playing, we feel happy and joyful, and by playing outside we learn to love nature and thereby develop lifelong conservation values.

Visit this blog often to see what's happening in LEAP each week!  We will share photos, highlight awesome learning moments, and feature guest bloggers who provide different insights into the Lincoln Park Zoo LEAP experience.
