Trips look a little different this summer at the Regent Center. We will take smaller trips to outdoor venues to ensure physical distancing is possible. Our first adventure will be to the Morton Arboretum. As an outdoor museum of living trees and a research and conservation institution, the Arboretum provides a 1,700-acre tree-filled landscape for visitors to explore and connect with trees and nature. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, your time at the Arboretum will be on your own to explore. We will eat lunch upon arrival, and then participants will have time to walk the grounds. Lunch options will be advertised in the Regent Report.

Cantigny Park

Wednesday, July 14,
10:30 am–4 pm
Departs from the Regent Center
$45 Member/$50 Nonmember
Program: 0021.23.2

During the early 1930s, Colonel Robert R. McCormick’s estate held an experimental farm on-site, which served as a working “laboratory” with the goal of serving the family farms that blanketed the countryside. The experimental farm tried new species of crop plants, tested theories of planting and harvesting, and investigated new practices in raising productive farm animals. Other experimental farms existed across the nation and one of the most successful was Colonel McCormick’s at Cantigny.
After McCormick’s death in 1955, the Board of Directors decided to change Cantigny’s focus from agriculture to horticulture by hiring famed landscape architect Franz Lipp to design and build a world-class garden. In 1967, Lipp began the construction of this lush, horticultural masterpiece, which is one of the largest display gardens in the Midwest with more than 160,000 annuals, perennials, ground covers, and flowering shrubs and trees. A majority of the plants seen throughout the gardens are estate-grown inside Cantigny’s renowned greenhouse. Due to COVID-19, we will tour the gardens on our own. Lunch will be had when we arrive, and participants will have time to explore on their own afterward.
