Rend Lake to host 'fun' night time events

BENTON, IL (KFVS) - A backyard campout and owl prowl program hosted by the Rend Lake Corps of Engineers will take place on July 9 from 7:30-9:30 p.m. at the Rend Lake Project Office/Visitor Center.

The night begins with the Rend Lake Park Rangers helping participants make s'mores over a campfire while they sing campfire songs, then lead the group and "sniff" for spiders and then they will lead a walk through the woods to see "who" they might find.

Also, on July 16 from 7:30-9:30 the Benton High School History Club will take visitors on a journey through Rend Lake's past during "Night at the Visitor Center."

For more information about Rend Lake's Environmental Science Series, please call the Rend Lake Project Office at 618-724-2493 or like us on Facebook at the Rend Lake Project Office/Visitor Center.
