Event details

Plum Creek Nature Center and Monee Reservoir are teaming up for a weekly Summer Explorers Club! Wiggle over to Plum Creek Nature Center for Week 3, when we’ll be getting down in the dirt learning about creepy crawlies.

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. Come for one club meeting, two, three or all six. Participation in other Summer Explorers Club programs is not required.

Future club meetings will be as follows:

  • Week 4 on Thursday, July 13: Underwater at Monee Reservoir
  • Week 5 on Thursday, July 20: Roots and Shoots at Plum Creek Nature Center
  • Week 6 on Thursday, July 27: Dragonflies at Monee Reservoir
