Summer Solstice Soiree
Date: Wednesday, June 21, 2023
Time: 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Age: All ages.
Location: Isle a la Cache Museum
Celebrate all things summer on the longest day of the year! Guests are invited to enjoy the preserve during evening hours, hike the shoreline trail, relax by the bonfire and explore the outdoor summer exhibit.
Every half hour, an interpretive naturalist will give a five-minute talk on the traditions of the solstice, local pollinators, a brief history of the island and animals found in the preserve. In honor of Pollinator Week, guests are invited to enjoy a light picnic with foods that wouldn’t grow without the work of pollinators! Feel free to bring blankets or camping chairs to use around the bonfire.
Registration required by Sunday, June 18: 815-722-9301.
This program will take place outdoors along paved and limestone trails and on natural surfaces across uneven terrain. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should mention their request when registering or submit a request online no later than 48 hours before the program.
