Celebrate World Turtle Day at the Nature Museum! Get up close and personal with all of our resident turtles as well as several special guest species. Meet reptile experts from the Nature Museum, the Chicago Herpetological Society, and the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County, and ask them all about our cold-blooded pals. Learn how the Museum is working with the endangered Blanding’s turtle in the Chicago region, then take part in a very special Blanding’s feeding! Plus, make your own turtle-y awesome craft to take home!
