Wild Things Wednesdays


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Send kids on a new adventure at a different forest preserve each week, during these naturalist-led programs. We'll explore the woods, search for wildlife in the prairie, wade in the creek, learn about aquatic life and more! The program is designed for kids entering 1st through 6th grades. You may register your child for one, two, or any combination of these seven programs. Advance registration is required. Call 630-444-3190 or email programs@kaneforest.com to register.
