I thought I’d check it out in advance and had a great time sketching with a friend of mine.  There’s a display room, a tropical room, a desert room and a neat little terrarium of carnivorous plants off in the corner.  As someone who likes color, texture, and funky plants, there was something cool to see around every bend.  Enjoy and I hope to see you there next Friday!

The Conservatory is at 615 Garfield Street, Oak Park, IL.
