Add to Calendar 11/30/2016 12:00 AM 04/17/2017 12:00 AM Rediscover Burpee- 75th Anniversary Exhibit Rediscover Burpee, a new exhibit celebrating the 75 year history of Burpee Museum, is an opportunity for the community to rediscover the treasure trove of artifacts, specimens, and memorabilia in the museum collection alongside newly developed exhibits. Visitors will go back in time to see what makes Burpee Museum a local treasure and unique among the country’s best natural history museums. The three-part exhibit will also highlight the work of Edward Curtis, a world famous ethnographer from Wisconsin known for his sepia-toned photographic images of Native Americans. The display will be complemented by many seldom seen Native American artifacts from the Burpee collection. The third segment of the exhibit is a unique array of wildlife from around the world. “Go Wild” is a wildlife conservation exhibit that depicts some amazing animals in lifelike settings. One of the highlights is the return of the crocodile. This gigantic specimen was a museum favorite in the Barnes Mansion for many years. In addition, the museum will display the artwork of a renowned local nature photographer, David Olson. burpee.org Burpee Museum of Natural History, 737 N Main St, Rockford, IL 61103, USA

Add to Calendar 02/25/2017 08:30 AM 02/25/2017 04:30 PM Native Plants Management Seminar Reservations for Garfield Farm Museum’s 32nd annual Natural Area Management Seminar to be held on Saturday, February 25th from 8:30 am-4:30pm are now being taken. From backyard gardeners to natural area volunteers, homeowner associations and property owners who wish to use native plants, this seminar covers all the basics to begin or expand one’s plantings. Jack Shouba, Conner Shaw, Patrick Chess and Jerome Johnson will share their years of experience and knowledge in saving the native plants of Illinois that are suited for this climate and habitat. Full day attendance and lunch is $55 and for those who can only attend a half day, the cost is $25. Although Illinois is a state where almost all of the native habitat was turned into productive farm fields or woodland pastures, efforts since the 1960s have grown to bring back the very native plants that contribute to a healthy environment, clean water and an ecosystem for native animals, butterflies, and insects.

Add to Calendar 02/25/2017 07:30 PM 02/25/2017 09:30 PM Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra: Opposites Attract Maestro Darko Butorac takes the stage to deliver a program of considerable contrasts. Excerpted from Verdi's tangled tale, La forza del destino, the overture introduces multiple melodies from the charming Italian opera. Soloists Jasmine Lin and Matthew Lipman, who both hail from the Chicago Southland, appear together on Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante, which is considered one of his early masterpieces. This work features unusually rich symphonic texture and is a study in contrasts with the viola tuned a semi-tone higher than normal. On the program's second half, Maestro Butorac says of Prokofiev's fifth symphony, "This is a work of incredible positive energy written during one of the darkest periods of human history, deeply affected by the Second World War." Even while knowing its dark roots, your spirit cannot help but soar as you listen to "A hymn to the free and happy man." Maestro Darko Butorac currently serves as the Music Director of the Tallahassee and Missoula Symphony Orchestras and is the Principal Conductor of the Fidenza Opera Festival in Italy. ipomusic.org/index.php/february-25-2017.html 21701 Gougar Rd, New Lenox, IL 60451, USA
