JUNE EVENTS

June 1st 6PM Explore the Seasons
Jackson County Extension office
402 Ava Road in Murphysboro

Why do we have seasons? Is it because of how close the sun is?  How many hours of daylight we get or is it something else? The way we experience seasons within our region can vary from those that live in other parts of the United States. Join visiting Extension Educator Duane Friend as he explains why we have seasons, what causes the changes in daylight length, and where we see the sun in the sky.

Register for FREE here by May 31st.



June 13th Pawfest 11am-3pm
Veterans Memorial Park Mt. Vernon
Vendors, Blessing of the Pets, contests, adoptable dogs and so much more!
Event is free- but any donations or supplies collected
will go to Jefferson County Animal Control.
