Event details

Spring is here! The temperatures are getting warmer, and the lake is starting to stir after a long winter’s rest. Let’s look for signs that warmer weather is here in the lake and along the banks and trails of Monee Reservoir.

Be prepared for indoor and outdoor activities that could include a hike, a story, games, music, art and more. We encourage experiencing the outdoors rain or shine, so please dress accordingly.
