If you thought Rockford didn't offer anything super cool for you to do this Summer, you thought wrong!

I'm always down for an adventure.  Give me a day, place, and time and I'll 100% be there.  If you told me we were going to hike in the middle of the night in the wilderness, I'd probably... think about it... but honestly I'd still go.  This is like a once in a lifetime experience and being with professionals who have my safety in mind definitely makes me feel a lot better.


Severson Dells is a Nature Center that has been educating the community about the environment since 1976!  You can visit them on school field trips, sign up for fun events, and take full guided hikes to learn more about the wilderness.


A new event coming up is the Full Moon Hike where the Nature Center takes you out to the woods and prairie to get a glimpse of the full moon!  On this adventure, you'll get to experience nature like never before.
