The grand reopening celebrates the updating of the outdated nature museum, a Schaumburg Park Foundation campaign. The renovated museum will allow for children to have an interactive experience with modern technology while immersing themselves in nature. The museum also is home to a nature library with hundreds of books, interactive displays, mounted examples of wildlife and a re-creation of a wetland habitat with native turtles.

The funding for phase one of the Campaign to Renovate the Nature Museum at Spring Valley has been generously provided by the Schaumburg Park Foundation and the Public Museum Capitals Grants Program of the Illinois Department of Nature Resources, Illinois State Museum.

The Schaumburg Park Foundation is a 501(c) 3 organization.
