OAKtober October 27th, 10:00am-2:00pm

It’s a fun-filled day foakused on the Oak Tree! Discover how oaks shaped the Midwest and how people and wildlife learned to use them. Learn to identify both the trees and their acorns; help plant acorns to grow our oak savannas; make some fun acorn toys to take home; discover how our ancestors used acorns for food and dyes. And if we are very lucky, Professor Albus Quercus from Dellwarts may put in an appearance! Fun for the whole family. Free.
