On display through October 31
Four DuPage nonprofit agencies, selected by Cantigny Horticulture for their commitments to environmental issues and sustainability, alleviating hunger, and building self-sufficiency in our communities, have each created a display.
Each creator will receive a $1,000 grant from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation. They also collect 100% of optional donations made by Cantigny Park visitors.
