9/23/21 Eco Justice Blue Bear Daytrip 

Tuesday, September 21, 2021, 11:00 am to 2:15 pm

The Eco-Justice Center is an environmental education center, founded in 2004 by the Racine Dominicans. Protecting the land, as well as the plant and animal species that live on the property, is vital. So, too, is preserving the farm buildings that date from 1870’s onward. We will take a docent-led tour of this unique setting and learn how they care for Earth on a living, working farm, while rooted in the traditions of the Racine Dominicans and in the history of this land.

The farm-to-table menu at Blue Bear Bakery is seasonal. It is too early to list their lunch options for our visit. Once you are registered, look for an email from ALL with three lunch choices in early September.
