Back to School Campfire gives summer a perfect sendoff

Aug 09, 2017

Say so long to summer by gathering around a campfire, roasting marshmallows and taking a rustic wagon ride through the prairie.

Back to School Campfire is set for 8 to 9:30 p.m., Aug. 18, at Spring Valley Nature Center, 1111 E. Schaumburg Road. Participants are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets.

“This is a festive event to mark the start of the school year,” said Dave Brooks, manager of conservation services. “It’s a neat opportunity to get families out in nature.”

Admission is $2 per person. Registration is not required.
