Flowers the focus of family program

RINGWOOD – The McHenry County Conservation District is offering a Saturday afternoon focused on having fun with flowers.

Lost Valley Venture includes a nature lesson, game and activity based around that topic and designed for families.

It will be offered from 2 to 3:30 p.m. each Saturday in September at Lost Valley Visitor Center in Glacial Park, Route 31 and Harts Road, Ringwood. If the weather allows, visitors also will go for a short outdoor exploratory hike with staff.

All ages are welcome and registration is not required.

Topics change monthly with bird migration planned for October and white-tailed deer for November.

This program is intended for families and cannot accommodate organized groups. Youth groups should call Prairieview Education Center at 815-479-5779 to schedule a program for their group.
