This week

Discovery Isle
at Isle a la Cache

  Children’s programs are held every Wednesday afternoon through Aug. 28 at Isle a la Cache Museum in Romeoville.
  The next of these “Discovery Isle” programs will be Wednesday, July 3, at 1 p.m. The program is free of charge and open to all ages.
  “Discovery Isle” will feature a different activity or demonstration every Wednesday during the summer focusing on plants, animals or history. One week we might be looking for critters on a trail and the next week meet with a re-enactor portraying a voyageur from the 18th century to learn fun games and hear interesting stories.
  Depending on topic and weather, programs may be held indoors or outdoors.
  Drop in anytime between 1 and 3 p.m. and join in the fun.
  Indoor facilities are accessible. Outdoor activities will take place on level paths or natural surfaces across uneven terrain.
