One of the best things about summer is sitting around the campfire and gazing up at the stars!  Come join us for Fireside Friday on Sept 15th in The Meadow Picnic Area for a talk about the cosmos with UIUC professor and astrophysicist, Gautham Narayan.  We will do some stargazing and munch on s’mores.

A cash bar will be open from 6-9pm. S’mores will be served. Please bring your own lawn chairs.
