It's no accident that Mother's Day arrives in the spring, when flowers are in bloom and everything smells and looks so sweet. Spend your special Sunday walking the trails and paths of these four nature centers.
Morton Arboretum celebrates mom with a number of events. Kids can take their moms on an exploration of the Children's Garden, with a pre-packed backpack of science tools, guides and other props. You can also get a family portrait, with the beauty of the arboretum as a backdrop. If you want to explore the arboretum's grounds, you can either take a nine mile bike ride or jump on the tram. And, of course, you can eat. There will be breakfasts both Saturday and Sunday, but the Sunday event sells out pretty quickly.
