07/25/13 Come and learn about the fish, plants, animals, birds and bugs that call Lake Maxinkuckee their home, as well as learn more about all the great people who have worked so hard to protect the lake and its watershed!
The Lake Maxinkuckee Environmental Council presents an exhibit all about our wonderful lake from its glacial beginnings to the problems and issues it has faced past and present. The exhibit also details the group's history as caretakers protecting and preserving the lake over the last thirty two years.
There will be an informal reception from 4 - 6 p.m. on Friday, July 26th with LMEF/LMEC members, and members of the public are encouraged to stop in and say hello. Light refreshments will be available for the reception.
The following afternoon, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 27th, kids and families are welcome to enjoy all the interactive exhibits and receive free coloring books and posters courtesy of Lake Maxinkuckee Environmental Council. Exhibits include magnifying boxes for bug identification, an animal tracks game, instruction on fishing pole assembly and an Enviroscape, on loan from the DNR, a hands-on model watershed that teaches kids how a lake ties the water cycle together.
The exhibit is free and open to the public, and may be viewed during museum hours at the Center for Culver History, in the basement of the historic Carnegie library building at 107 N. Main Street in Culver, Indiana, during our opening hours Tuesdays through Fridays from noon - 6 p.m., and every Saturday from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. For more information, contact us by telephone at (574) 842 2941, ext 218, or via e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org.
