Program Description

Event Details

Now that summer is finally here, it's time to enjoy the great outdoors! Join Lisa Sons, Natural Resource Coordinator with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, for a virtual stroll through the rugged canyons, scenic overlooks, and beautiful waterfalls at Starved Rock State Park. Located between Ottawa and La Salle-Peru along the Illinois River, the park is a little over a one hour drive from Woodridge. The miles of trails, historical significance, well-appointed lodge, and abundant wildlife (including bald eagles in the winter) make this a popular destination year-round.

Visitors can enjoy outdoor activities that include hiking, canoeing, paddle boat cruises, cross-country skiing, trolley rides, fishing and picnicking. You can even stay overnight at the historic Starved Rock Lodge or in one of its cozy cabins!

Thursday, July 14, 7 p.m. This is a free virtual program using Zoom.
