Learn all about wetlands at a special Illinois Natural History Survey exploration at Anita Purves Nature Center on April 27 from 10 - 11:30 a.m.

Ecologist Julie Nieset will lead the Spring Wetland Ecology walk through Busey Woods. Look for spring wildflowers and visit seasonal ponds to learn about their unique plant and animal communities.

The hike will follow the soft trails, so dress for mud.

Register by April 15 for a special discount - $7 for residents and $11 for non-residents. Call (217) 367-1544 to register, or online at

Everyone (age 15 and under with an adult) is welcome to our Spring Wetland Ecology program on April 27!
