[Urbana] Winter Solstice Celebration

Saturday December 18, 4-7 pm
Anita Purves Nature Center
All ages (Under 15 with adult)
Must call to register

Enjoy a festive evening of stories and adventure during this twilight event in anticipation of the shortest day of the year. We will space out around the fire for snacks and storytelling, make wildlife treats to decorate a native tree, and set our intentions for the coming year. Guided hikes through Busey Woods will depart every hour, and we will finish with a candlelit winter spiral walk at 6:30pm.

While pre-registration is required for this event, drop-ins are welcome throughout the event time between 4-7pm. Call 217-384-4062 to sign up.
