Summer Solstice Soiree 2017

Web header UECsite


We’ll be celebrating the 10th annual Summer Solstice Soirée as well as the 10th Anniversary of the Washington Park branch. See how we’re lighting the way by educating urban youth, preserving the land, connecting people to nature and bringing communities together. The night promises to be illuminating!

All proceeds from the event directly support the Center’s mission and help to bring the wonders of our urban landscape to more students, families and neighborhoods.
