May 17, 2020, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM @ Grand Kankakee Marsh
Peek into the lives of those who would have lived or traded along the waterways of the Midwest more than 250 years ago when the marshes were a source of valuable furs desired by merchant traders to take back to Europe. Meet Native Americans, French-Canadian canoe men, called Voyageurs, British and French militia, early settlers, and many others. There will be interactive reenactors, historic story telling, delicious food, and much more! Make sure to visit midday on Saturday and join the travelers challenge race, a race unlike any you’ve seen before.
May 17, 2020, 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Buckley Homestead
More details about the digital delivery of our Sheep Shearing Program are coming soon!
Don't be sheepish about coming to this special program celebrating the wide variety of livestock who call Buckley Homestead County Park home. The park will be having demonstrations on sheep shearing, wool cleaning, and spinning yarn. Besides sheep you will have the chance to meet and interact with other animals. Free but we will be taking donations for animal food during program.
