RINGWOOD – A free introductory session will kick off the next batch of McHenry County Conservation District's People and Nature Programs.

The series of workshops will cover ecological restoration, landscaping with nature and nature interpretation.

The open house and introductory session will give those interested a chance to learn more about the programs and ask questions. Attendees will receive a $15 credit toward their next workshop.

The drop-in event will run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 8, at the Lost Valley Visitor Center in Glacial Park, Route 31 and Harts Road in Ringwood.

A short synopsis of the People and Nature Programs followed by a question-and-answer session will be held by the programs' coordinator and Research Field Station ecologist Tom Simpson at 7:15 p.m.

He will also give a short presentation called "What Rock Is That? How rocks form and how you can identify the various rock types."

Registration is not required.

For more information, contact Simpson at (815) 678-4532 or go to the People and Nature Programs' website at www.mccdistrict.org/web/pr-pancp.htm
