Poetry Promotes Conservation

The Brookfield Zoo is opening a Language of Conservation exhibit that will permanently display poems throughout their Great Bear Wilderness sanctuary. The official opening is May 22 at 10am and will feature Chicago Zoological Society's poet-in-residence Sandra Alcosser, as well as other poets and guest speakers. Go for the poetry, stay for the bears.
