CAFÉ BRAUER AT LINCOLN PARK ZOO
Chimpanzees in Context will be held in Café Brauer at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, also the location for the previous Understanding Chimpanzees symposium, The Mind of the Chimpanzee.
Café Brauer is a Prairie-school style landmark building, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The symposium will be held in the Great Hall which features tile mosaics, Tiffany inspired chandeliers, and spectacular views of the park and skyline. Café Brauer sits on a pond south of Lincoln Park Zoo where the zoo’s Nature Boardwalk begins. This urban ecosystem provides a haven for native wildlife and an educational opportunity for all ages.

The opening reception and poster session for Chimpanzees in Context will be held at Regenstein Center for African Apes at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. This state-of-the-art building features outdoor and indoor exhibits designed to accommodate the apes’ spatial preferences and allow for behavioral and cognitive research. The building opened in 2004 as a home to two groups of chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) and two groups of western lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla).
