Friends of Rocky Glen is sponsoring a drumming event from 3 to 6 pm on Saturday Oct. 11. Participants will meet at the Jimmy’s Bar parking lot, 2801 Farmington Road, to car pool to the Rocky Glen trailhead.

The event will be led by Jimmy Lakota Edwards and FORG board member Teresa Smith.

Participants should dress in weather appropriate gear and bring their own instruments. The hike is approximately 1/3 mile each way and moderately difficult.

Drum circle gatherings are special because they are inclusive of all ages and levels; they build community, form group consciousness and allow us to feel oneness.

A $10 donation requested. Funds raised will go towards a parking lot and trails so that Rocky Glen can be opened to the public.

Rocky Glen is a box canyon with 80-foot sandstone walls covered with carvings, seasonal waterfalls, rare plant communities and a rich history of coal mining, labor organizing and outdoor recreation.

Rocky Glen came into public ownership in December 2012 when it was purchased using previously set aside natural areas funding. The property was transferred to the Peoria Park District in December 2013. Currently Rocky Glen is only accessible on Friends of Rocky Glen monthly hikes and during other approved events. Friends of Rocky Glen is a non-profit group dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Rocky Glen.
