See the spotted owl, polar bear, smooth coneflower and Will County’s own Hine’s emerald dragonfly like never before. The plight of 182 endangered species will be on full display in 24-inch-by-24-inch quilt panels. If you enjoyed the “Inspired by National Parks” quilt exhibition in 2018, you will not want to miss this collection. A sampling of quilts will be on display at each of the four visitor centers.
The exhibit is made possible through the generous support of The Nature Foundation of Will County.
