Squirrels to be topic of Lost Valley programs

RINGWOOD – Lost Valley Venture events this month will be from 2 to 3:30 p.m. March 23 and March 30 at the Lost Valley Visitor Center in Glacial Park, Route 31 and Harts Road.

This free family exploration program from the McHenry County Conservation District includes a nature lesson, game and an activity based around this month’s topic: squirrels.

If the weather allows, guests also 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 April, the topic will be signs of spring and in May, it will be nesting time.

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.
