Join in for expert-led walks about the Woodland Habitat Restoration project, the unique flatwood ponds (and the animals who live there) found at Ryerson, and how the Lake County Forest Preserves are reaching into the community and partnering with homeowners to spread conservation efforts.
Guided fall walks, a touch table, crafts and kid-friendly nature activities will introduce the whole family to oak trees and the animals that depend upon them. All ages. Adult supervision required.
