I absolutely love the summer solstice. What's not to like about this lovely day? It is the longest day of the year and the weather is usually glorious. Plus, it is the official start of summer. I always wish that there were more fun ways to commemorate this fantastic occasion. So I was delighted to learn that the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum is hosting a "welcome
back" party for summer on Tuesday, June 21 in
correlation with the summer solstice.
honor this unique day, the Nature Museum is extending its
hours! From 5 -9 pm the Museum will be open--for free. Guests will
be treated to an evening of live music, refreshing treats from Dominick's
and Honest Tea and opportunities to win fantastic prizes, including four tickets
to OVO, the new Cirque Du Soleil show.
Museum encourages guests to take full advantage of the warm weather (finally!)
by exploring the great outdoors that surround us in Chicago. In addition to the
summer solstice, the Nature Museum will also be celebrating the grand opening
of its newest exhibition Nature Trails, which will connect guests with
the nature and science right outside of the Museum. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a guided hike,
smell the flowers and learn how seeds move about the landscape. The evening
will also be filled with plenty of fun summer activities including a guided tour of
the Museum's Bird Walk, a lesson on solar cooking and a demonstration on how
to make a sun clock.
See you there?
