Celebrate the Winter Solstice at Anita Purves Nature Center

Anita Purves Nature Center is hosting a Winter Solstice celebration on Saturday, December 18th from 4 to 7 p.m., with a candlelit spiral walk happening at 6:30 p.m. The event is open to all ages, those under 15 must be accompanied by an adult. From the event page: 

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.

You must preregister for the event by calling 217-384-4062. No guarantees of a pretty blanket of snow like the photo shows!
