Saturday, January 23rd – Open Hike Night A Luminaria Walk at Casper Bluff

In place of our traditional Bonfire on the Bluff event, we are inviting the public to an open hike night at the Casper Bluff Land & Water Reserve on January 23rd, 2021. Luminarias will light the trails leading to the Thunderbird effigy mound, the Galena Rotary Pavilion, and the new story walk for kids. While we won’t be gathering around a bonfire to share stories and treats in order to comply with State of Illinois Covid-19 restrictions, this is still a great opportunity to get the family outside to enjoy Casper Bluff ‘after hours’ as this is one of the few times the preserve is open after dusk. Admission is free with donations to JDCF gladly accepted. Masks required in the parking lot and groups of 10 or less only. Snow date January 30th, 2021. This event is subject to changes in Covid-19 mitigations.
