Community Partners

Everyone knows that Brookfield Zoo is situated in the middle of two beautiful communities: Brookfield and Riverside, Illinois.  We are dedicated to working with the surrounding communities as educators, horticulturists, and artists to foster a greater appreciation for nature, literacy, and conservation initiatives.

Summer Loving

School’s out, zoo camp is in, and the summer fun is just beginning. The summer is one of the best times to visit Brookfield Zoo because that is when we pull out all the stops and celebrate animals and nature to their fullest!
