Clarke’s Listening Walk at the Zoo Events are Canceled

Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech (Clarke) and our zoo partners continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19. In the wake of recent zoo closures, Clarke’s Listening Walk at the Zoo events are canceled and registration is closed. Thank you for your flexibility as we work to ensure the health and well-being of Clarke families, staff and the broader community.

We kindly ask for your understanding as we work to apply collected registration fees and donations to cover our event planning costs to-date and to support the continuation of services for Clarke students learning to listen and talk. We are happy to report that because the events are canceled, registration fees will be acknowledged as donations and are tax-deductible. You will receive an acknowledgment of your contributions in the coming weeks.

We remain extremely grateful for all sponsors, participants and volunteers who support our mission.

In 2019, more than 600 friends explored the Bronx Zoo at Clarke's Listening Walk at the Zoo and raised over $80,000! Thanks to their involvement, children who attend Clarke New York will feel the impact of the generous support today and in the future.
