The Notebaert Nature Museum fosters environmental learning through its exhibits and over 100 science and nature programs. The museum puts a particular emphasis on environmental sustainability, with its extensive outdoor Greening Project exhibit and full sized Extreme Green House in the middle of the museum. It also boasts the only year round live butterfly exhibit in the region and River Works, an interactive water exhibit. The Museum’s new Teacher Advisory Board involves educators in brainstorming, evaluating, and piloting educational programming developed by Museum staff, and the Museum's Science Teaching Network is a summer institute and meetings designed to create a collaborative learning environment where teachers work together to develop integrated science curricula using classroom and Museum-based lessons. The website provides information on teacher workshops, field trips off site education, Scouts programs, summer camps, teen programs and community partnerships.
