Self-Guided Visits

Self-Guided Visits are Free!

Due to the small indoor exhibit area, we ask that you bring a maximum of 20 students/scouts inside the nature center at a time. If your group is larger than 20 students, please call 630-864-3965 and let us know what day you plan to visit; there may be other groups scheduled for the day that will be using the exhibit area.

Things to do:

  • The nature center features a 900-gallon freshwater tank with native fish along with native reptiles and amphibian exhibits.
  • An indoor scavenger hunt is available for use inside the nature center to find the live animals, fossils and animal fur.
  • Three hands-on displays change periodically and highlight seasonal changes.
  • Three outdoor mobile tours (Nature Scavenger HuntMake Earth Day Every Day, Audio Described Tour) are available for smartphones users. Each tour is about 1/2 mile long. Data charges may apply. To view our outdoor mobile tours beforehand call 630-315-9156 or visit
  • Additionally there are 5.5 miles of trails within the park. You can request a map at the front desk or click here.
  • Our picnic areas can accommodate groups of up to 25 students for free, on a first come first serve basis. If you plan to visit with more than 25 students/scouts, or you want to guarantee use of the picnic area, you must reserve the picnic area by calling 630-864-3965.
