Home Newsroom Fire Up for Fall at Ignite the Night with Citizens for Conservation

A highly-anticipated Autumn highlight for the whole family, Ignite the Night is coming up from 5 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, September 30th. You don’t want to miss Citizens for Conservation’s fall fundraiser, which will feature a cookout dinner, live music, food, stargazing, flashlight walks for kids, a raffle, and horse-drawn wagon rides, and will be capped off by a spectacular bonfire.

It’s happening on Saturday, September 30, from 5-10 p.m. at the Spring Creek Forest Preserve and the Barrington Hills Park District, 361 Bateman Road in Barrington Hills.

Dave Anderson and the I-Lights, with Henry Heine and Dana Underwood, will provide music; members of the Spring Creek Stewards will narrate horse-drawn wagon rides. Barrington Hills residents and astronomers Tom and Edith Auchter will share their knowledge and telescopes and give attendees a chance to view the night sky, stars and planets.

Wildlife Discovery Center of Lake Forest will give a hands-on educational presentation with animals and birds. The presentation, sponsored by CFC’s Youth Education Committee, is lots of fun for children and adults. WDC is nationally recognized and has been featured recently on Chicago news programs.

The event also features a raffle with prizes including a Brookfield Zoo Day for six, a private spring birdwalk with Barrington-area conservationist Wendy Paulson, a four-hour polo lesson for two, artwork, golf packages and more.

Tickets are $50 in advance for adults ($65 at the door), $25 for teens through age 20, and $10 for children 12 and under. Raffle tickets are $5 apiece or seven tickets for $30. Online ordering is available on the Citizens for Conservation website at CitizensForConservation.org.

All proceeds from Ignite the Night will go to CFC. Sponsors of the event include the Barrington Hills Park District and the Forest Preserve District of Cook County.


Citizens for Conservation’s mission is “Saving Living Space for Living Things” through protection, restoration and stewardship of land, conservation of natural resources, and education. For more information about the work they do, visit their website at CitizensforConservation.org.
