Event details

Every field trip season, the interpreters at Isle a la Cache teach students about the fur trade and the people of 18th-century Illinois Country. But there are a lot of adult topics that are taboo — mature relationships, alcohol, rowdy rendezvous, even pipe breaks. Come on out and bring your own adult beverage (wine and beer only) as we explore taboos of the trade. Light refreshments will be provided.
