Exploring Trees Inside and Out at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum


The new exhibit Exploring Trees Inside and Out is an excellent example of what the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum does best -- interactive educational opportunities for kids of all ages.

Exploring Trees Inside and Out is making
the final stop on its three-year tour across America at the Nature Museum and I had a chance to check it out with my boys last week.

The exhibition is part
of an education outreach effort to encourage kids to explore the beauty of the great outdoors through the
incredible wonder of trees. The exhibition will be here in Chicago through
January 30, 2011.

The 2,500-square-foot
exhibition offers kids a variety of interactive opportunities. My kids
spent most of their time climbing in the "treehouse." Other highlights
include opportunities for kids to explore the "forest" through touch,
smell, and sound. My little guys especially loved the chance to dress up
as a cardinal or squirrel and see themselves on the green screen.
