In his words, Wiley is on a late-in-life mission to throw a safety net to teenagers he believes are on the road to a lifetime of poverty. Wiley will discuss his plan designed to help these teens find a mission, a job and purpose in their lives.

Pirates

Pirates.jpg

Swashbuckling adventure will be swarming into the Paper Discovery Center with our new, hands-on exhibit all about pirates. Riverfront Pirates will be the only pirate exhibit in the Fox Valley this winter and spring.

Can you “eye-spy” plunder hidden in plain sight? Will you make it through the spinner quest, or how about smelling pirate’s breath, swab the deck, get locked in the stocks or break the secret code on the pirate treasure map?

Fun for all ages and you can call each other a scurvy dog and get away with it. Keep to the code and set sail this winter for the Riverfront Pirates at the PDC.
