Allerton Park and Retreat Center
One of the best things about fall is doing things around the campfire! Head to Allerton 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.
