SYCAMORE, Ill.—The Midwest Museum of Natural History in Sycamore, Ill., will present “Rockin’ for the Reptiles” from noon to 5 p.m., Saturday, June 25.
The event will feature live music, games, face painting, live animals, activities and moon bounce. All funds raised will go to the museum to support live animal care and educational programming.
Museum Director Molly Holman said: “The museum houses about 30 live animals, mostly reptiles. The animals are great partners in our educational programs, and it’s wonderful to have them on exhibit at the museum, but caring for them is costly. We hope the community enjoys the opportunity to have a fun afternoon, while contributing to a good cause.”
The event will be held in the parking lot across the street from the museum, at the corner of West State Street and California in downtown Sycamore. Cost for a day pass is $2 for adults, $6 for children (ages 1-12) or $20 for a family pass. Passes can be bought at the gate with cash or check, or across the street at the museum with credit card. Passes cover all games, activities, live animal visits and moon bounce. Food and souvenir vendors will be present; their cost is not included.
