Event details

Unplug Illinois is an initiative of the Illinois Parks and Recreation Association to “unplug” from our electronic devices and get outdoors! In the spirit of unplugging, stop by Isle a la Cache’s lagoon to get a hands-on look at what’s in our rivers. We will use nets to scoop aquatic critters and then take a closer look at them with viewing containers. We may even catch a frog or two.

Dipping nets and viewing containers will be provided. All animals will be released back into the river. Please dress in clothes and shoes that can get wet and dirty.

This is a drop-in program; come any time between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
