Summer Solstice Solar Social

Celebrate the longest day of the year by embracing the power of solar energy at a Summer Solstice Social on Monday, June 17 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at our McDonald Farm headquarters in Naperville.

The Social is co-sponsored by The Conservation Foundation and the Illinois Solar Energy Assocation and will highlight sustainable technologies at McDonald Farm, including those from this amazing renewable resource.

A presentation on the value of solar energy will be followed by a tour of the solar panels mounted on the barn roof and other eco-friendly features such as the wind turbine that are part of our 60-acre headquarters.

Enjoy light refreshments and socialize with other solar enthusiasts as you wait for the greatest show of all: the day’s sunset marking the beginning of the Earth’s rotation from its furthest point from the equator, onward toward the winter solstice when daylight is the shortest before the cycle continues again. A telescope will be available for stargazing.

This event is free, but registration is required.






McDonald Farm is located at 10S404 Knoch Knolls Rd in Naperville.
