Conservatory's Fern Room to re-open Saturday

December 2, 2011 (HOMER GLEN, Ill.)

The conservatory's fern room will re-open to the public Saturday. The room was among many damaged during a hail storm back in June.

A polycarbonate roof has been installed to protect the plants during the cold winter months.

Officials say this is only a temporary fix and they are still working to repair the damages from the storm.
