RINGWOOD – Are you looking for something the whole family can do for free on a Saturday afternoon?
The McHenry County Conservation District will host Lost Valley Venture programs from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Jan. 5, 12, 19 and 26 at the Lost Valley Visitor Center in Glacial Park, Route 31 and Harts Road, Ringwood.
This free family exploration program includes a nature lesson, game, and activity based on this month’s topic: animal tracks.
If the weather allows, guests will go for a short outdoor exploratory hike with staff, so they should dress for the weather and walking.
No registration is required. All ages are welcome.
Topics change monthly; in February, it will be sugar maple trees.
This program is intended for families and cannot accommodate organized groups. Youth groups should contact Prairieview Education Center at 815-479-5779 to schedule a program for their group.
