  • Neighbor Nights

    Have you been to National Great Rivers Research and Education Center facility? Are you curious about the many ways in which the organization works on the river? Would you like to meet some of the staff and have the opportunity to ask questions and take a look around? If so, then please join us for Neighbor Nights @NGRREC.

    Neighbor Nights will take place on the first Tuesday of every month. From 5:30-8 p.m., NGRREC will be open for you to come and go as you please. Feel free to explore our lobby, our native landscaping and/or take a stroll up to our green roof. A tour of the entire building will take place at 6 p.m., and a short presentation on a different river project each month with start at 7 p.m. Attend one or both of these, or just drop by for a bit!

    Upcoming Event

    The Jerry F. Costello Confluence Field Station will be closed January 2, 2018 in observance of the holiday season.

    Our next upcoming Neighbor Nights will be February 6, 2018 and will feature a discussion with IRAP (Illinois Recreation Access Program) Coordinator, Eric Wright about prescribed burns. Come learn about how natural resource managers use prescribed fire to maintain a variety of sustainable habitats in Illinois.
