Happy Hour Hike at Porter Park

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

This month we will explore Robert C. Porter Family Park in Champaign. We will meet at 5 pm on September 30 at the Porter Park Pavilion at 2310 S Rising Rd, Champaign, IL 61822. There is no registration necessary, just swing by the meeting location at 5 pm. After our Happy Hour Hike, folks are invited to head over to Green Drinks.
