Celebrating 20 Years!

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Bradley University (OLLI) is a group of more than 1,000 individuals, age 50 and over, who learn together through three distinct programs: OLLI Classes, OLLI Learning Trips, and OLLI Study Groups.

Here, members can discuss what they learned, what they enjoyed, and offer suggestions to enhance future program offerings.

Take a look at the photos we're taking, and the discussions we're having as OLLI members.

Whether we're in class, in town, or out of town ... we're on the go, having fun, and constantly learning.

We look forward to reading your comments!

Forest Park Nature Center - June 11, 2014

What an informative trip to the Forest Park Nature Center! This year, the 540-acre park is celebrating its 50th anniversary! What better way to celebrate the birthday of this Illinois natural preserve than with an anniversary history hike? On this hike, OLLI members got to experience some of the 7-miles of trails and the open woodland, meanwhile learning all about the many forms of wildlife and bird species.

Sightings of the day included, a deer, several species of birds, a turkey, and most-exciting--an ant valley! Trip-goers also had the opportunity to learn about the history behind the nature that makes up the Prairie State. Exploring the various plant species, included examining texture, scents, and growth patterns.

We concluded the trip with a delicious lunch at Peoria's very own Pizza Works!
