The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

There’s a lot of buzz about the importance of bees and their decline in population. Wondering how something so small can affect so much of our world? Visit this special exhibition to learn about small pollinators and what to do to help save them.

Discover the diversity of pollinators and how they contribute to our quality of life by helping provide food, healthy landscapes, medicines and clothing. With pictures, amazing facts and fun activities, you’ll never experience a walk (or a bite of food) the same way again!

This exhibition is made possible by The Paly Foundation, which focuses on efforts that highlight the importance of conserving and protecting natural habitats and wildlife populations. It is funded in part by The Nature Foundation of Will County
