Summer Solstice at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum

Summer is officially here, and the Nature Museum has a great way for you to celebrate with your entire family! On Tuesday, June 21, the Museum will be open from 5-9pm for a special Summer Solstice evening. It's free, and the entire Musuem will be open for you to enjoy.

Guests will enjoy a special evening of music, summer treats, fun activities and the chance to win tickets to Cirque du Soleil's OVO. You'll also having a chance to be among the first to tour the Museum's newest exhibit, Nature Trails. This will be the Museum's largest permanent exhibit, and is a 1/3+ mile trail right in the heart of nature in Lincoln Park. Forget you're in the city, and you can:
  • Explore native vegetation such as prairies, savannas, wetlands and woodlands
  • Marvel at the colorful cluster of butterflies at the Woodward A. Wickham Butterfly Garden
  • Watch dragonfly larvae, diving beetles and tadpoles at the Pickerelweed Pond
  • Listen to one of the sounds of summer—birds singing
  • Smell the herbs and fresh, seasonal produce in the urban garden

Again, it's all FREE on Tuesday evening!
