There is a new addition to the dolphin family at Brookfield Zoo. Allie, a 26-year-old bottlenose dolphin, gave birth to a female calf on Aug. 2 around 11 a.m. At 3 feet long, the calf weighs 40 pounds and appears to be healthy and strong.
Summer means the return of many things like bee stings and mosquito bites. But the influx of insects doesnt have to be a bad thing. Just look at Chicago Botanic Garden, where the Butterflies & Blooms exhibit shines a light on some beautiful bugs.
