Anyone who's ever gone through an awkward stage (in other words,
all of us) can agree there's something strangely inspiring about
the process every caterpillar goes through. Now there's an
opportunity to see the winged wonders up close at the new
Butterflies & Blooms outdoor garden.
The garden will showcase hundreds of exotic butterflies, as well
as the more common, but equally beautiful, kind you see in your
backyard. You can even observe butterflies hatching through a
window into the pupa emergence room-a great lesson for your tween
that this stage of life won't last forever.
10 a.m.-5 p.m. June 2-Sept. 3. $5, $3 kids 3-12. Chicago Botanic
Garden, 1000 Lake Cook Road, Glencoe. (847) 835-5440, chicagobotanic.org.
