Closure FAQs

The Naturally Illinois Science Box was developed by the Prairie Research Institute outreach and education team as a tool to help students learn about the work of the five Illinois State Scientific Surveys which make up the Prairie Research Institute.   The box is named after our Naturally Illinois Expo, and includes a variety of books for all age levels as well as hands-on activities that showcase the wide range of scientific research conducted by our scientists.  Bring a little bit of our Expo into to your home, classroom, scout troop, 4H club, or other group year round!
