Description

Spend the weekend exploring Allerton’s Natural Areas with the whole family! Champaign Surplus presents this hassle-free camping experience, providing families the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and learn about nature. We will kick off the event on Friday Night with our Campfire Jamboree Concert featuring the Okee Dokee Brothers. Following the concert sleep under the stars in the Allerton Meadow and in the morning, sleep-in or get up early to help check wildlife traps, catch birds, or stretch your legs on a biologist-led hike. Spend the rest of the day helping biologists (from the Illinois Natural History Survey, University of Illinois, and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources) catch, identify, and release various wildlife; try out the newest camping gear and gadgets from Champaign Surplus and enjoy a live wildlife show by Natural History Education Company of the Midsouth. After dinner, relax by the campfire for stories, s’mores and sing along, or go on a stargazing night hike led by the U of I Astronomy Department.

This event will be limited to 250 people.
