The Forest Preserve District of Will County will present a Diversity of Life trail exhibit from 8 a.m. to sunset from June 7 through October 2 at Isle a la Cache Museum, in Romeoville. The family-friendly display engages visitors with bilingual (English and Spanish) signs that invite children to actively use their observation skills as they learn about biodiversity, from an invitation to search for insect pollinators to the fur on leaves or birds in the sky.

Visitors can take a stroll in a natural setting surrounded by scenic views along the Des Plaines River. The exhibit was developed by Denver Botanic Gardens and is brought to the museum through support from The Nature Foundation of Will County.

Free admission, registration is not required. Location: 501 E. Romeo Rd., Romeoville. For more information and directions, visit
