Grab a net and magnifying glass; there are animals to discover under water! Many types of animals actually begin their lives in rivers, lakes and ponds. Join us to see what lives in and around the pond that is attached to the Des Plaines River at Isle a la Cache preserve. We will use nets to scoop for aquatic critters and then take a closer look at them. We may even catch a frog or two. Dipping nets and viewing containers will be provided. All animals will be released back into the pond at the end of the program.

Fee: Free!
Age: Ages 5 or older; accompanied by an adult
