If you're like me, the Morton Arboretum is one of those wonderfully nature-filled spots in Chicagoland that you haven't been to in years. Like the Chicago Botanic Gardens, it's beautiful, affordable, and a great escape from the city. The Arboretum, however, won't be so calm this weekend as it features hawks and other birds of prey.
