Why travel to another state, or country, when you can make amazing discoveries in your own backyard? Designed around the enchanting theme, "You Don’t Know What You’ve Got…," Hickory Knolls' exhibits and displays showcase the Fox Valley area’s many natural treasures.
Hickory Knolls is a LEED - or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design - certified building, the first of its kind in Kane County. As a LEED-certified building, the Hickory Knolls Discovery Center is a destination in and of itself. The acronym stands for Leadership in Energy and Environment Design, and buildings that receive such certification must adhere to a number of criteria in both concept and construction.
