Event details

Plum Creek Nature Center and Monee Reservoir are teaming up for a weekly Summer Explorers Club! Fly on over to Plum Creek Nature Center, because for Week 1, it’s all about birds. Activities take place indoors and outdoors and may include a hike, a story, games, crafts and more.

Explorers experience the outdoors rain or shine and often get dirty, so please dress accordingly. Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on your own after the program.
