Creek Bend Nature Center will look a little different, next time you stop-in for a visit.  A new tallgrass prairie exhibit has been installed.  According to the Forest Preserve District of Kane County, the exhibit depicts a tallgrass prairie both above and below ground.

Above ground, the exhibit includes a colorful representation of typical grasses, common prairie forbs, taxidermy specimens, and models of wildlife that live on the prairie.      CREEK BEND.jpg
