WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY
Chicago Botanic Garden’s annual party for planet Earth is an excuse for kids—and adults—to play in the dirt. See sustainable planting demos, farm-to-table food talks, and a brand-new garden-as-classroom.
6/2 WGN’s sky-watcher Tom Skilling gives a keynote presentation at the garden’s World Environment Day bash. The festivities also include the dedication of the new Grunsfeld Children’s Growing Garden. Open 7 am–9 pm. Parking $7–$20. 1000 Lake Cook, Glencoe. chicagobotanic.org.
