One of the best things about fall is doing things around the campfire! Come join us for Fireside Friday on Oct 13th in The Meadow Picnic Area for a talk all about spiders, bats, and blood-sucking insects with Dr. Holly Tuten from Prairie Research Institute at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and Tommy McElrath of Illinois Natural History Survey. Play a vector-borne disease game that will have you checking twice for ticks!

A cash bar will be open from 5 – 8pm.  S’mores will be served.  Please bring your own lawn chairs.

$5/person (ages 5 & under free). Register here. All sales are final.
