The Brookfield Conservation Commission is holding its annual Meet the Creek Event on Saturday, September 17 from 12:00-4:00. This event is an opportunity for residents to have positive interactions with the creek and learn something about the creek and its ecology, etc. The Chicago Herpetological Society will again participate and canoes will be available for residents to take a paddle on Salt Creek. There also will be live reptiles, a display of crayfish and fish from the creek, and some activities for kids. A review of last year's event can be found under the "Current Events" tab.
