NEW! Earth Day - R20555

AGES: All

Bring your family to celebrate Earth Day at a local nature spot! Activities include an hour of service to nature with the Cook County Forest Preserve site stewards (either helping to cut and burn buckthorn for adults and children over age 10 or trash pickup), followed by a nature hike with BackYard Nature Center naturalists to look for signs of animals that live at the lagoons. Participants can also learn how to spot birds, and how to bait a hook and cast a fishing rod (and maybe even catch a fish!). Afterwards, participants are welcome to bring s’mores, hot dogs, or other food for roasting over the brush pile fire.

Please Note: All minors must have a parent present to sign a Cook County Forest Preserve waiver form.
