The Howlin’ Brothers
Supported by Kendra Swanson

Saturday, April 25th, Doors at 6:00 pm Show at 7:00 pm
$20 Advance ticket

The Howlin’ Brothers are a Nashville based string band composed of Ian Craft, Ben Plasse and Jared Green. Anchored in a bed of old-time blues and bluegrass, their upbeat shows are heavy with original and traditional music, featuring the sounds of slide banjo, harmonica and old-time fiddle. Sounding like what would happen if a bunch of Appalachian punk rockers formed a jug-band, The Howlin’ Brothers play with a ferocious energy that drags you in and finds you boogieing along in spite of yourself. Give them a listen at www.thehowlinbrothers.com : Call 1-815-335-2915.

Writing in the Warmth: A Spring Into Thought
Saturday, April 25, 10:00 a.m. – noon

Join Severson Dells Biologist/Educator Greg Keilback for an exploration in awareness. We will meet in the classroom and using writing prompts from multiple authors develop a working conversation in environmental topics of multiple issues. If you feel you have a voice, or thoughts on the state of environmental issues locally, or globally I would like to hear yours. Together our voice can be heard and movements can grow. If you are apprehensive of sharing your thoughts, that’s ok. Come and listen and enjoy the hot chocolate! Contact Severson Dells to register at 815-335-2915.

Bluebells and Blueberries – Members only Muffin Walk
Saturday, April 25, 9:00 a.m.-noon

Meet Severson Dells educator Don Miller in the parking lot at Oak Ridge Forest Preserve and enjoy some delicious blueberry muffins. We’ll then hike back to the acres of bluebells of Oak Ridge along the South Branch of the Kishwaukee River. Our destination will take us through a sea of bluebells to two of the most outstanding Sycamore trees you will ever see. (I am not kidding here!) The hike will be moderate to difficult because of uneven ground, possibility of extreme wet conditions, and distance, besides all that, this is one AWESEOME hike!!!!! Free! Reservations are a must! 815-335-2915.
