Explore the Chicago Botanic Garden Butterfly House

The spectacular wonder of butterflies!

 

We will check out the butterfly house.  The admission is $6.  Offer a winged hitchhiker a ride.  I visited this exhibit last year and it really is one of the best butterfly houses I've experienced.  Great photo opportunities.  After the butterfly house we will walk the trail at the perimeter of the park to take in the bell tower, research center and much more.

 

Hope to see you there!!!

    a clarification ... Corner Bakery side of Barnes & Noble, not the inner parking lot that also provides parking for Chuckie Cheese.

    If you'd like to join the carpool and save the $25 parking fee read on ... At 1:30 we will meet at the Barnes & Noble bookstore parking lot. The store is in the Village Crossing Shopping Center. 5405 W Touhy Ave, Skokie, IL 60077. This is just west of the Edens expressway. The store is at the northeast corner of the shopping center. Please try to be on time, if you will be more than 15 minutes late, post a message to this site so we know your situation.

    Looking forward to the event, the forecast is for 91 and showers so an umbrella is recommended. If the rain is really heavy we can seek shelter in the greenhouses and forego the perimeter walk after the butterfly house. There are also photography exhibits and a library indoors as well.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
