Celebrate Earth Day at Allerton Park!

Join Illinois Extension Educator, Ryan Pankau, for a short hike exploring the specular woodland habitat at Allerton Park.  Ryan will show you a beautiful collection of blooming wildflowers and talk about the rare and pristine environment needed to support such thriving populations of sensitive native wildflowers. He will also cover some of the biggest threats to forest habitat in Illinois, such as non-native invasive species, and send you home with practical ways you can help preserve these unique ecosystems.

Continue the Earth Day celebration by making a wildflower seed bomb with 4-H Extension Program Coordinator Anne Reinbold and Allerton’s Visitor Center Coordinator Sarah Putman.  Please wear weather appropriate attire that you don’t mind getting dirty.
