Groundhog Gala

Woodchuck, land beaver, whistle pig—groundhogs go by many names. On Saturday, January 29, the Midwest Museum of Natural History will be tipping its hat to this mighty marmot during their third annual Groundhog Gala.

 Guests will enjoy a fabulous evening complete with music, exhibitors, a silent auction, and treats from around the world. Snack on authentic Mexican fare from Taxco while enjoying Latin dancers (and maybe learn a few steps yourself!); enjoy steel drums while chatting with dinosaur expert, Scott Williams; sample fruit, wine, and cheese while learning about Monarch Butterflies and native plants with Janie Grillo; get an inside look at taxidermy with Terry Martin, and more!

 The Groundhog Gala is the Museum’s largest fundraiser of the year and all proceeds support educational programming, live animal care, museum operations, and community outreach. Tickets for the event are $30 each or two for $50; stop by the Museum or call 815-895-9777 to reserve yours today.

 The Midwest Museum of Natural History is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Our mission is to inspire an appreciation for the great diversity of the natural environment and human culture through education and recreation.
