La Salle library hosts 'Exploring the Continental Divide'

On Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 6 p.m. the La Salle Public Library will host environmental steward and naturalist instructor Emily Kenny, when she presents, “Exploring the Continental Divide.”

Last year, Kenny blazed a section of trail in Wyoming. In this presentation, learn about her trip in the Wind River Range and find out what she carried for a few weeks living in the wild. Kenny will show all her gear, talk about the significance of the continental divide and discuss the wilderness experience.

For more than 15 years, Kenny has taught people of all ages about the natural world and has organized experiences so people can better appreciate the natural world. From fundraising bike rides to coordinating entire council events for the Girl Scouts of America, merit badges for Boy Scouts and implementing special events for park districts, Kenny is now with Multidisciplinary Education for the Environment. At ME4E, Kenny is able to extend her services to reach more diverse populations. When she isn’t working, teaching or volunteering, Kenny can be found outdoors, enjoying the natural world.

This program is free and public, and is made possible through funding by the Alwin C. Carus Trust. For more information, call the library at 815-223-2341.
