The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Event Details

***Due to the stay-at-home order issued by Gov. J.B. Pritzker that is in effect through April 30, this program has been canceled.***

Help celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day by planting seeds of change and helping the Earth Day Network log 3.5 Billion Acts of Green in 2020! Stop by Isle a la Cache Museum to pick up a free packet of pollinator-friendly seeds to take home and plant.

You don’t need a big patch of land to have a pollinator garden! A few square feet in the yard or a couple of planters or flower pots on the porch will do the trick. Add water and sunshine and you’re on your way to providing critical food and habit for the pollinators that play an essential role in producing our food, clothing, medicines, healthy landscapes, and more! Thanks for doing your part!

One packet of seeds is provided per household, while supplies last.
