RINGWOOD – Lost Valley Venture programs will take place from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, and May 11, 18 and 25 at Lost Valley Visitor Center in Glacial Park, Route 31 and Harts Road, Ringwood.

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

If the weather allows, participants 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. The topic for June is turtles; in July, it is predators and prey; and in August, it is insects.

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.
