  • Description - Nature Museum

    At the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, we are committed to offering programs that educate participants about nature and the environment through fun, hands-on activities. Our programs are led by trained Museum educators and include a variety of topics and age levels. From our youth workshops offered in one afternoon to our Day Off at the Museum, children are encouraged to look at nature in their own backyards. Our Bunking with the Butterflies Overnights encourage youth groups and families to spend the night at the Museum attending a series of workshops and sleeping among the Chicago Academy of Sciences Collections. Scouts can also get involved in educator-conducted badge workshops or the special scout only overnights scheduled throughout the year.
