Chicago Jedi Scavenger Hunt (New date)

On account of the rain out last time, we have rescheduled the Scavenger Hunt for this Sunday, September 22.

From before, the Force will be strong as the Chicago Jedi celebrates its second annual Scavenger Hunt at the Lincoln Park Zoo

Teams of 3-4 (with one camera) will spend the afternoon snapping pictures of the Zoo like you have never seen it before. Find and photograph all the items on the list, and first prize could be yours! No tripods necessary!

Please arrive at the Cannon Drive Zoo Entrance by 3:00 P.M. to pick up your supplies and get situated with your team. Please note that the Zoo Entrance is free. The hunt will begin promptly at 3:30. The end time depends on the last team to finish (secret location) with awards.  If it's still early we may find a place for a bite to eat.

Also, please feel free to invite additional friends and family to the event.


Parking charges in the Cannon Drive parking area (enter from Fullerton) are as follows:

0–30 minutes—No charge
30 minutes–3 hours—$20
3–4 hours—$24
4–5 hours—$30
5+ hours—$35

Parking may also be available in the metered areas on nearby streets, but those spots are usually difficult to find and you may have to interrupt your scavenger hunting activities to put more money in the meter.

    Had such a great time. The zoo has changed quite a bit since I was last there. It seemed like an entirely different place. I took a good deal of intuition and some navagating skils on the part of all the teams, and we were all very close the whole way through.
    Thanks Gabe, and everyone who made it, for a wonderful afternoon at the zoo.

    Great seeing everybody and having an awesome time. Unit cohesion and team work and very interesting skills to develop. This was a wonderful method to use to develop some of our more intimate skills.

    I got here a bit early, due to lack of traffic. I am not sure which entrance to wait at though. I am currently at the east entrance next to the parking lot.

      That is the correct entrance. Some of us will be there shortly
