  • Owl Prowl
    2/9/2023 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

    Owl Prowl

    Thursday, February 9

    OWL PROWL

    Museum of the Grand Prairie, Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve, 5-7 p.m.

    Why prowl for owls now? Many species are most active in the winter months, because they are breeding or nesting. That means we have a better chance of hearing or seeing a live owl in the wild! This program begins indoors with a presentation, and participants will have the chance to dissect owl pellets and take them home. Then, we will hit the trails to call and search for owls! Recommended for ages 4 and up. Children must be accompanied by an adult. $5 per person. Space is limited; registration required by February 8 at ccfpd.org. All attendees (adults and children) must register in advance. Current public health guidelines will be followed. Program may be altered or canceled due to weather or health-related concerns. For more info: (217) 896-2455 or [email protected]

    Special Exhibit Speaker Series the Health and Equality Ideals: Through the Lens of History and Preservation

    SPECIAL EXHIBIT SPEAKER SERIES

    The Health and Equality Ideals: Through the Lens of History and Preservation

    Online Event, Streaming on the Museum of the Grand Prairie Facebook and YouTube pages, 7 p.m.

    Help us continue our special speaker series with this engaging virtual program featuring Dr. David McBride, a research specialist, public historian, and professor emeritus of African American studies and history at Penn State University. David's presentation will trace the origins and accomplishments of struggles by civic and health activists to establish equal health opportunities throughout American communities. From the U.S. constitutional protections for equal access to health and environmental resources, to initiatives by public and private health institutions to curtail the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and equality ideals have shaped U.S. medicine and public health for nearly two centuries. Be sure to visit the Museum of the Grand Prairie’s special exhibit “A History of Healing: Infectious Diseases and Community Responses to Defeat Them” soon to learn more about the impact of hard-hitting diseases in our communities’ history and the effect they had on local healthcare systems. This program is supported in part by our friends at Illinois Humanities. FREE. For more info: (217) 586-2612 or [email protected].
