If the cool temperatures have you feeling particularly peppy, stop into local nature wonderland Lake Katherine, in Palos Heights.
The nature center and botanic garden, located at 7402 W. Lake Katherine Drive, is open today from dusk to dawn. Check out some of the 120 species of birds, 19 kinds of mammals, a dozen types of fish, and 17 species of reptiles and amphibians. Or enjoy the floating water plants and trees and decorative flowers. And don't miss the the waterfall which tumbles over four separate falls, travels a distance of over 300 feet consisting primarily of rapids and small pools, and descends approximately 30 feet in height before joining the lake itself on the east side.
