Two centuries ago, Illinois served as the start for one of the greatest exploratory endeavors undertaken in North America—the Lewis and Clark Expedition. This expedition generated perhaps the most famous nature journals ever compiled during their two-year exploration of the American West. Today, a new Corps of Discovery has been developed by biologists from the Illinois Natural History Survey. Armed with pencil, paper, and camera, this new corps has set out to rediscover the Grand Prairie in central Illinois as it exists today. Join us for an entertaining multimedia presentation featuring the natural and cultural beauty of Illinois interpreted through artistic expression by members of the Corps of Discovery. This presentation will kick-off the grand opening of the 100 Discoveries temporary exhibit, running from March 1 to December 31, 2012 at the Museum of the Grand Prairie. Free.
