Celebrate the Spring Equinox
Dabble Cares and the Nature Museum get ready to plant Chicago beautiful!
Hate to see all those vacant lots around Chicago? Yeah, us, too.

Come Earth Day, these little seed bombs of native flowers will find their roots throughout our city.
Flex those green thumbs and help make Chicago beautiful.
** Free with the cost of museum admission.
Just come prepared to get a little dirty and have fun!
We will provide everything you need.
We are the urban gateway to nature and science History: The Chicago Academy of Sciences was founded in 1857 as Chicago’s first museum, dedicated to the preservation and display of native specimens. Today the Academy’s collection, due to its age and type, places it among the most important in the world. In 1999, the Academy opened the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in Lincoln Park. It has welcomed more than 1.5 million visitors and is a unique venue for the public, especially urban dwellers, to find new ways to reconnect with the natural world. Mission: Our mission is to create a positive relationship between people and nature through collaborations, education, research and collections, exhibits and public forums that fosters urban connections to our region’s nature and science.
