Ferson Creek Park - RUSTY RODEO!

Posted on Jul 24 2021 - 8:13am

Date: August 7th
Time: 11:00 AM

Location: Ferson Creek Park

Forest Preserve District of Kane County presents Rusty Rodeo!

There are underwater invaders in our local streams and rivers and we want you to help us find them! Our culprit is the Rusty Crayfish, a tiny aquatic creature that is an invasive species in Kane County. Help Naturalists round up some rowdy Rusty Crayfish in an effort to reduce their numbers. Families are encouraged to join us in the water with dip nets to collect, identify and remove some Rusties. You might even find the biggest of these varmints or collect the greatest number of them.

Prepare to get wet! Wear closed-toe shoes and clothes that can get muddy.

Memorial Day Activities and Signup

Pack 801 will once again be flagging graves of veterans at the Whitney Burlington Cemetery at 10am on Saturday, May 29. Christine Brauer, local Campton Hills historian, has invited the son and wife of a WWII veteran to give a short presentation about their father/husband.

If you can help with this important tradition, please wear your Class A uniform and bring brooms, dust brushes and other tools to tidy up the grave markers.

We will be doing a very small sunrise flag raising on Monday morning, 5/31, at 6am and need a couple volunteers for the ceremony and reading. Please sign up if you would like to participate for either event and how many would show up per Family.
