Experience The Grove! A National Historic Landmark and Illinois Nature Preserve
Dear Friend of The Grove,
We all enjoyed a relatively mild winter but it's still wonderful to welcome SPRING! Come out to The Grove to hear the birds singing and see the wildflowers in bloom. What a great time to explore the fascinating creatures in our ponds and discover the wonders of our native wildlife. How about joining us for
Earth Day at Air Station Prairie with a trail walk and some great family activities? Stop by The Grove's popular
Vintage Market event in May and browse dozens of eclectic vendors and unique craftspeople. And don't forget to stock up on all your spring flowers and native plants at the Grove Heritage Association annual
Plant Sale. See you there!
