Groundbreaking set at Kennekuk


DANVILLE — Vermilion County Conservation District officials plan to break ground at 1 p.m. Sunday for Phase 1 of the Kennekuk Environmental Education Center.

The building site is located at the White Oak Barn area. The project has been on the Vermilion County Conservation District’s Master Plan since 1995 and has been a capital project of the Vermilion County Conservation District Foundation since 2006.

There also will be a dedication of the Wheeler Foundation Nature Trail at that site. The 1/3-mile all-accessible trail was a donation from the Wheeler Foundation.

The events are open to the public. Call 442-1619 for information.
