An interactive exhibition, "Believe it or Not! The Secret Lives of Honey Bees" provides a fun approach to learning about the amazing world of these incredible creatures. The exhibition includes life-size honey bee habitat furniture to hide in, an interactive exhibit gallery displaying text and graphics, and an educational video game about pollinators. While visiting, be sure to see the other pollinators that live in our native garden surrounding the nature center. The exhibition was organized by the Purdue Agriculture Exhibit Design Center, Purdue University, and is brought to the Forest Preserve through funding provided by The Nature Foundation of Will County. The exhibition will be located indoors in an accessible facility.
