21st from 4:30-5:30 pm
MAKANDA, IL – The trails at Giant City usually close at dusk so now is your chance to join environmental educator
Steve Gariepy for an evening stroll! We will walk the 1/3 mile accessible Post Oak Trail to mark the Winter Solstice for
2023. At the apex of the wintertime darkness, it will be a great time to get out, stretch out a bit, think about our current
position in the solar system, while celebrating the return of more light and longer days! Please dress for the weather and
Please call 618-457-4836 for more information or to register.
