  • The center focuses on children's activities inside; but outside is an aviary with raptors that have been injured or cannot survive in the wild. The keepers are very knowledgeable and happy to share...  more »

  • I have a small day care in my home and for many years I've never been able to get inside the nature center. The afternoon hours prevent my preschoolers from seeing it because they nap in the afternoon. I've requested maybe "one morning a week" (or month), that the nature center might be open for anyone with only morning availability. I am willing to work around ANY morning, M - F, that could be arranged. I would think anyone passionate about nature would welcome the opportunity for children to come explore, and enjoy the nature center. The current hours are prohibitive of that. Just a side note...the director of Hawthorne Nature Center in Elgin gave me her cell # so I could arrange future visits on mornings they are not officially open. Dedicated nature lover!!! I hope to see changes in the near future to include everyone who would like to visit the nature center. Karen Nelson Elk Grove Village
