Your Chance to See Rare and Endangered Species




The award-winning photography of Illinois native Carol Freeman, featuring the state’s rarest species from endangered owls to dragonflies, is the subject of her exhibition, Endangered Beauty, through June 24 at the Chicago Academy of Sciences Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.

       Freeman set out in 2003 to photograph all of the 483 threatened and endangered species that were listed in the state at the time. She calls it “the ultimate labor of love” to inspire viewers to care, protect and preserve the most vulnerable plants and animals.

       Freeman is the founder of the Team Green Environmental Network, which has created Nature Trading Cards that enable people to learn more about both common and rare species in the Midwest. Team Green’s mission is to educate, enlighten and inspire people to reconnect with and learn to appreciate nature.

The exhibit is included in the price of general admission. Location: 2430 N. Cannon Dr., Chicago. For more information, call 773-755-5100 or visit NatureMuseum.org.
