Austin Gardens Environmental Education Center Main Room
167 Forest Avenue, Oak Park IL 60302

Rachel Carson was a marine biologist, but she's most well known for writing about DDT and protecting bald eagles all across America. We'll explore her story, learn the science through games, and try to see some bald eagles of our own!


In the US, women are 48% of the workforce but only 27% of the STEM careers. This family-friendly program explores a different science-loving lady each session through story, art, and more!
