Have you made it up to Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center yet this season?

What are you waiting for!!

Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center has been a very busy place this season. With the addition of the Nature Center you can always find something going on.

Jacqueline our Nature Program Director is showing this little girl what a wood tick looks like under a mini microscope.
Here some families are learning about loons and various bugs that make the Gunflint Trail their home.

Speaking of loons: our nesting pair finally set up home around June 3 we should be seeing some little babies by the end of this month.


Sunday Afternoon Presentations for the month of June.

All presentations are located at Chik-Wauk Nature Center from 2 – 3 pm and free to the public.

June 19 – spend an hour listening to a PBS special that was taped back in 1992 on Justine Kerfoot. Justine talks about her life.

June 26 - Amanda Weberg, the Cook County Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator. Learn how these invaders affect you, what they look like, where to find them, and what you can do to become a clean water superhero.

Tuesday’s starting June 21 until August 16 we will have our Kids’ Day Programs from 11 am to 4 pm.

Children under age 18 can visit the Museum and Nature Center free of charge.
