What is a savanna? What makes a wetland a wetland? We’re exploring some Midwestern ecosystems in our new, permanent exhibit – the Hawver and Lacy Families Nature’s PlaySpace. This play area is filled with lots of fun interactives, but did you know that each section in this exhibit is actually based on an ecosystem that you can find in Illinois? Today we’re going to take a closer look at prairies, savannas, dunes, lakes, rivers, and wetlands to learn more about what makes them so unique in this episode of Curious By Nature!
