Event details

Cure cabin fever by exploring the outdoors with a naturalist to seek tracks, scat, nests and more. Discover how winter can be a great time in nature and how animals can leave us signs. Once we harness some inspiration, we’ll re-create our experience and get building with LEGO. The strong STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) aspect will be our little secret. LEGO creations will be on display for the rest of the month!

Event requirements

Registration required by Saturday, March 18: 815-722-4121.
