Wildflowers of Illinois program offered at Tiskilwa
NT Staff

TISKILWA — Connie Swanson will share photos, commentary and Native American lore pertaining to Illinois wildflowers at 7 p.m. Monday, April 14 at the Museum on Main, 110 E. Main St., Tiskilwa.

Swanson’s slide presentation begins in earliest spring, when skunk cabbage begins to poke through the melting snow. The program moves through the summer months and into fall, as viewers travel through Illinois’ meadows and woodlands, sand pits and prairies to enjoy the infinite variety of colors and forms in nature’s best decorations. In addition, Swanson will share Native American lore of medicinal uses of various plants.

As always, the program is free and open to the public. Tiskilwa Historical Society welcomes everyone to share in a glimpse of Nature’s bounty that is all around us. Following the program, the community members are invited to enjoy refreshments and social time in the museum.
