Fall color to be focus of Lost Valley Venture program

RINGWOOD – Looking for something the whole family can do for free on a Saturday afternoon?

Join the McHenry County Conservation District for a Lost Valley Venture program from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Saturdays, Oct. 5, 12 or 26, at Lost Valley Visitor Center in Glacial Park, Route 31 and Harts Road.

This family exploration program includes a nature lesson, game and activity based around this month’s topic: fall color. 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 required. All ages are welcome. 

The topic for November is wild turkeys.

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.
