Enchanted Forest Walk @ Oakwoods Nature Preserve
Oct 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Join the Hancock Park District staff for an enchanted stroll through our character-filled trail on Saturday, Oct. 18 at Oakwoods Nature Preserve. This is the park district’s 16th year hosting the Enchanted Forest Walk. Groups will visit a live owl at Black Swamp Raptor Rehabilitation station, where the presenter will share information regarding the species. Then, we will head to the trail to follow the glowing eyes in the woods, to each character station. Groups will leave the “Doc” Phillips Discovery Center with a trail guide every 15 minutes from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. After the walk through the woods, warm yourself by the fireplace to share some fall refreshments. The walk is designed to provide an alternative, non-scary, educational activity for family members. Participants are required to be 4 years and older. Registration is due by noon on Friday, Oct. 17.

GRÜBS at Coffee Amici 8:00 pm
GRÜBS at Coffee Amici @ Coffee Amici
Oct 25 @ 8:00 pm
The ukulele might be a little stringed instrument, but the GRÜBS are making a big impact on the folk music scene. The Grande Royale Ükulelists of the Black Swamp consists of four Bowling Green musicians who have as much fun playing together as their band name might suggest. Anne Kidder, Jason Wells-Jensen, Sheri Wells-Jensen and Geoff Howes play a variety of ukuleles and sing everything from folk standards and hymns to rock band covers and original tunes. They also hold workshops and jam sessions for all levels of ukulele interest and ability. The band often can be found at local coffee houses and festivals, and this year it was a featured performer at the annual Mighty Uke Day event in Lansing, Michigan, the “Friday Night by the Tracks” preview party for National Train Day in Toledo, and the Black Swamp Arts Festival in Bowling Green.
