YEW Pop-Up Camp at Rozz-Tox Thurs. 7/29 POSTPONED for Heat Advisory
Hi everyone, Given the soggy conditions on the ground (and in the air), and given that there’s a heat advisory for this afternoon (Thurs. 7/29), we are going to postpone the YEW Pop-Up event scheduled for today at the greenspace outside of Rozz-Tox & Laborspace in Rock Island. We apologize for any inconvenience.
