Happy Hour Hike on the Kickapoo Rail Trail

The East Central Illinois Master Naturalists and Champaign County Climate Coalition invite you to join us for a Happy Hour Hike, the final Friday of the month from 5-6 pm at local natural areas. These meet-ups are designed to be low key opportunities to enjoy a walk and talk with conservation-minded folks in our region. Whether you are just getting curious about our local environment or it is your full-time job, anyone is welcome to join. You will be in the company of others who enjoy sustainability and climate-related activities and conversation.

This month we will explore the Kickapoo Rail Trail starting in Urbana with Stacey Clementz. We will meet at 5 pm on May 27 at the North West corner of the Walmart Parking Lot, 100 S High Cross Rd, Urbana, IL 61802. There is no registration necessary, just swing by the meeting location at 5 pm. Further events and information can be found on the Champaign County Climate Coalition Facebook Page, or feel free to reach out to Amanda at achriste@illinois.edu or by phone at 217-333-7672.

After our Happy Hour Hike, folks are invited to head over to Green Drinks at Riggs, 1901 S High Cross Rd,
Urbana, IL 61802. This month we are talking about growing native plants in the home landscape with the owners of Well-Fed Caterpillar, a native plant nursery and landscape design in the Champaign area. Find more about Green Drinks here

Everyone is welcome! People from environmental groups, business, government, academia, and as individuals are invited—and should bring friends!
