BUCKTOWN — Leaders of a Bucktown neighborhood organization are asking residents to put stuffed animals in their windows this month as part of a “virtual safari.”

The safari began last weekend and will end April 18.

The Bucktown Community Organization is behind the event, and said families who are taking walks — while social distancing, of course — are encouraged to have their children make note of the animals they see.

The families should email their children’s lists of animals to safari@bucktown.org by 10 p.m. April 19. The children who find the most animals will get a shout-out.
