MCCD plans Lost Valley Ventures at Glacial Park

RINGWOOD – Families may join the McHenry County Conservation District for a Lost Valley Venture from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday and Feb. 9, 16 or 23 at Lost Valley Visitor Center in Glacial Park, Route 31 and Harts Road.

The family exploration program includes a nature lesson, game and activity based on this month’s topic: sugar maple trees. If the weather allows, guests will go for a short outdoor exploratory hike with staff. Participants should dress for the weather and walking. Registration is not required. All ages are welcome.

Topics change monthly. March's topic will be squirrels, April's will be signs of spring, and May's will be nesting time.

The 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.
