The Chicago Chapter of Young Women In Bio invites middle school girls to join us for a self-guided tour of the Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance on Friday October 13. The self-guided tour will include a 15 minute presentation of the Park, self-guided tour of the Adaptations Experience inside the park and the outside grounds of the conservatory, and finish with a brown bag lunch. During and after the self-guided tour, attendees will have an opportunity to ask Women In Bio members questions, as well network with girls interested in careers in science.

WIB membership is not required – all middle school-ages girls are welcome!

* This is a “drop off” event. Volunteers from WIB-Chicago will be chaperoning the tour.
