Enjoy the Elsie Jacobsen Discovery Garden with our Garden docents who are trained volunteers of the Friends of the Oak Park Conservatory (FOPCON). Garden docents are there to help you while you and your child lead the discovery. The Friends will provide materials to help you enjoy different themes of exploration.

The Garden Shed of exploration tools is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am – 3:30 pm. Shed hours will start when the water pump is running in the Spring and Summer.

The Elsie Jacobsen Discovery Garden is outside the Conservatory, so please dress accordingly. In case of inclement weather, please call the Conservatory at 708-725-2400 to find out if the Garden docents will be running the program
