Announcing a new Meetup for Suburban Chicago Vegetarian Meetup!

What: hike and picnic at starved rock

When: Sunday, May 16,[masked]:00 PM

Starved Rock State Park
2668 East 875th Road
Oglesby, IL 61348

With spring upon us, we're trying a little something different! So get out those hiking shoes and we'll meet at Starved Rock State Park for a vegan potluck picnic and then take a hike on the many trails in the park! I am not going to over organize this one...we'll meet together for the picnic but you can choose your own trail and who you walk with (and how long you go, etc etc). Please feel free to email members and arrange carpooling and don't let that drive discourage you. Yes, it takes a while to get there, but it's BEAUTIFUL!!!

Don't feel like prepping any food? Stop at Foothills Organics on the way to the park- it has PLENTY of vegan options!! Check them out here and feel free to contact them to arrange to pick something up- gotta support those local veg friendly businesses!!! wink

I think we will meet in the parking lot by the visitor's center. i'll bring a table to set up and a balloon to make us visable. I am going to look a little more into picnic areas there so i'll update this and send an email out to those attending for final details.

If the weather is yucky, I will post the cancellation by 9AM that morning. PLEASE CHECK THE MEETUP SITE BEFORE YOU LEAVE!!!! thanks. smile
i will probably have the option of meeting at my place for the potluck if we get rained out...i'm gonna think about that one..

Please visit the park's site to get directions- I don't want to be responsible for directions and get people lost..not my area... confused
