May 20, 2017, 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM @ Shorewood Business District
Celebrate the 100th anniversary of Shorewood's name change with historic walking, biking, and running tours; interesting facts displayed throughout the shopping district; and fun shopping, eating and business specials being offered by the many businesses in Shorewood.
May 20, 2017, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ Shorewood Nature Preserve. Entrance on east side Lake Drive between Menlo and Newton.
An army of aliens, reeking of garlic has been creeping through our Shorewood Nature Preserve. This army is so plentiful, it is killing off native wildflowers and competing for resources. The name of this pungent foe is garlic mustard. Take the time to help push back this invasive plant. Join the Conservation Committee on May 20 to pull garlic mustard and help restore the Preserve, while viewing many species of wildflowers and enjoying this wonderful, underappreciated Shorewood amenity.
Also, consider capturing some of this noxious weed for yourself in order to make a delicious pesto! Get a free pesto sample and take home a recipe to make your own.
See you at the entrance to the Shorewood Nature Preserve.
(Long pants and gloves are recommended. Bags for pulled garlic mustard will be provided.)
May 20, 2017, 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM @ Village Center
Saturday, May 20, Village Center and Library Lawn, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
The Historical Society will introduce its new Walking/Biking/Riding Tour at this community event. The 12-stop tour encourages participants to visualize what Shorewood looked like in 1917 when there were only 600 homes and about 1600 people living in the village. The tour can be completed at any time, but
there will be docents at each of the stops on May 20 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Additional historic photos and pictures of the 100-year-old houses will be on display in the library. A number of village organizations will participate in this event including the Friends of the Library, the Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Committee and the Shorewood Recreation Department. Refreshments and children’s games will be part of the Village Center activities. Children will be given a punch card to
record their tour stops. The Shorewood Business District is also considering some special sale activities.
