Welcome Winter during a free celebration at Anita Purves Nature Center!

December 6, 2021 03:58 AM

Anita Purves Nature Center will host a free Winter Solstice Celebration on Saturday, December 18, from 4 – 7 p.m.

The park district welcomes all ages (under 15 with an adult) to the nature center.

The evening will feature a fire for snacks and storytelling. People can make wildlife treats to decorate a native tree. Naturalists will give guided hikes through Busey Woods.

The evening finishes with a candlelit winter spiral walk.

While free, the nature center needs to know how many are coming to prepare supplies and make sure there’s enough space.

Please call David at the nature center at (217) 384-4062 to sign up.

Celebrate the shortest day of the year on December 18 at Anita Purves Nature Center!
