What better way to say hello to the New Year than a hike and time spent in the great outdoors with friends who share a love of nature. Join the Sangamon Valley Group of the Sierra Club on a New Year’s Day hike and feast of soup. Remember the children’s book Stone Soup? Well, there’s no stone necessary in this pot– participants are asked to bring one ingredient for the meat pot and one for the veggie pot, plus their own bowl and silverware. The club welcomes everyone to this invigorating morning meet-up. Membership in the group is only $39 per year. Visit illinois.sierraclub.org for details.
