Pere Marquette State Park

The history of Pere Marquette State Park centers around the Illinois Rivier. The surrounding region is an ideal environment for prairie grasses, plants, and deciduous forest, dominated by oak and hickory trees. Join Andrew Holsinger, Extension horticulture educator, for a morning at the park. Tour the park and learn about tree identification and native trees of Illinois.

We will meet outside the Pere Marquette State Park Visitors Center
