LEGO Gone Wild

Let your kid's imagination run wild! The Forest Preserve is pairing your child's favorite pastime activity, LEGO, with outdoor exploration. Travel to different forest preserve sites, explore hidden habitats with a naturalist, and then it's time to get building. We will discover some hidden habitat gems using binoculars, bug boxes, insect nets and more. Once we get a feel for our muse, we will brainstorm the best way to recreate the habitat using LEGO bricks and discover just how all the pieces fit together in nature. The STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) strong aspect will be our little secret. The program and hike will take place outdoors on natural surfaces across uneven terrain. The hike will be less than 1 mile. For ages 6 or older. Registration required two days before the program.

Having toured across the United States, this eclectic and highly impressive collection depicts 59 national parks in all. With three quilts for each park, 177 quilts are part of the collection and beautifully highlight each national gem's unique flora, fauna, and landscape.

TajMo: The Taj Mahal & Keb' Mo' Band brings to life the Grammy Award-winning collaboration between these two Blues titans in an exciting night of live music; performing songs from their long-anticipated collaborative album TajMo, available now on Concord Records.

The album was self-produced by the duo and was mixed by Grammy Award-winner Ross Hogarth and mastered by Grammy Award-winner Richard Dodd. The 11-song set includes covers of John Mayer and The Who, as well as 6 original songs. Taj Mahal has been recording and performing his unmistakable blend of blues and world music for over 50 years, winning multiple Grammys and collaborating with the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and more along the way. Keb' Mo,' who has often cited Taj as one of his musical heroes, is a 3-time Grammy Winner who has collaborated with everyone from Raitt to Jackson Browne and Buddy Guy.
