Friends of Wapello

JDCF’s Friends of Wapello invite you and your entire family to join them for an old fashioned ice cream social fundraiser under the new pavilion at the Wapello Land & Water Reserve on Thursday, May 30th from 5-8PM. Bring your lawn chairs, picnic baskets and blankets to enjoy the sights and sounds of Wapello while listening to local favorite, Medicinal Purposes. Tickets for this event are $10 per person with a $40 max for families. This is a BYOB family event. JoJo the clown will be in attendance. The Wapello LWR is located at 8642 IL Rt 84 S, Hanover, IL.

The Friends of Wapello is a volunteer, civic organization created to promote, develop, and interpret the natural and archaeological resources of the Wapello Reserve so that they may be shared with this and future generations.

Help is always needed to battle invasive plant species, clear trails, and prepare for events such as archaeology surveys.  Meetings are held the first Tuesday of the month at the Hanover Township Park District at 6 PM.  All are welcome.
