- Dickson Mounds, Lewistown
Adults and their tots will have fun exploring, discovering, and learning on the first Thursday of the month in the Museum’s Discovery Center. Spend quality time with your tot, while each of you makes new friends. A different topic and craft will be featured each month. Registration is not required and admission is free. Participants will enjoy light refreshments. The program begins promptly at 9:30 a.m. with the program portion lasting approximately thirty minutes followed by crafts, snacks, and time to explore the Museum.
The August 1st topic will be “Beetles.” Lewistown resident, 4-H member, entomology enthusiast Max Johnson will present information on a variety of beetles. Learn what beetles eat, how they survive, and where they live. Max will showcase his beetle collection. Specimens from the Illinois State Museum’s collection will also be on display. Fun crafts to take home!
