SYCAMORE, Ill. — Midwest Museum of Natural History in Sycamore, Ill., will host “Rockin’ for the Reptiles” from noon to 5 p.m., Saturday, June 22.
Live music, food, games, crafts, moon bounce and reptiles will be featured at the event. Guests can visit with turtles, lizards and snakes from the Chicago Herpetological Society, Chicagoland Mobile Veterinary Clinic, and more exhibitors. All funds raised will go to the Midwest Museum of Natural History to support live animal care and educational programming.
“The museum houses about 30 live animals, mostly reptiles,” said Museum Director Molly Trickey. “The animals are often featured in educational programs at the museum and local schools and libraries. However, caring for them is costly. This event is a great way to introduce people to reptiles while also raising much-needed funds.”
The event will be in the parking lot at the corner of Somonauk Street and Elm Street in downtown Sycamore; rain location is in the museum, 425 W. State St., Sycamore, Ill.
Admission is $5 per person for ages 2 and older. Passes can be bought at the gate and are good for discounted museum admission for the day, too. Live music will be by Buffalo Jump, the Fishback Boys, and Garage Orchestra.
