Free 45 Minute Guided Tours Offered:
The Confluence Learning Center and Grounds are open 9am-3pm.
The confluence of Turtle Creek and the Rock River has been inhabited by humans for thousands of years, as fertile land and abundant resources made it a very desirable place to live. Native American Indians settled here, fur traders used the waters as a trade route, and in the last 100 years, South Beloit has become a bustling community. On August 26 we’re celebrating South Beloit’s Centennial by offering guided tours of the facility.
On this tour you’ll learn about the history of the land, and the work to bring it back to life. Learn about the people who lived here, see our “secret” creek, visit our Italian heirloom garden and learn about the centennial prairie.
No registration needed. We will be walking on the gravel trails, and a bit on a grassy field (less than 1/4 mile). Free event
