Through up-close interactions with beloved animals, the timely and award-winning Weather to Climate exhibit, the brand-new children’s interactive Secret Forest playspace, and so much more, the Nature Museum encourages the wonder in our nature.
Our many science education programs, such as Science on the Go and Science Teaching Network, are continuing safely in-person and virtually in hundreds of schools, and our numerous conservation programs are thriving—even while socially distanced.
Generous support for our annual Butterfly Ball helps make all of these terrific programs possible. Over the past 23 years, the Butterfly Ball has raised more than $38.5 million, and these philanthropic investments enable the Nature Museum to continue making tremendous impacts on the community as we build educational experiences for Chicago’s children that will reverberate for generations to come.
