If you have ever wondered what The Nature Institute is or what services they provide, then Saturday's "Autumn Open House" is your chance to get those questions answered and learn more about the facility. The event will feature music from Typsy Gypsy, dinner and a presentation from Debbie Newman of the Illinois Nature Preserves Commission.

TNI Outreach Coordinator Amy Curry says the NPC is an important asset.
