This blog is an active effort to keep readers informed of current natural events and to offer helpful suggestions for exploring local nature niches in Lake County, Illinois. For many people, “Nature” starts with a capital “N”. When asked think of meaningful experiences in the outdoors, many minds automatically turn towards the grande vistas of huge National Parks or long road-trips to far-away destinations. But what might be most beneficial for our health and environment is finding nature niches closer to home. Connect daily, not once a year. Explore the trails, and find your niche in the Lake County Forest Preserves.
LOVE YOUR BLOG! Passing on the information to my teachers and they are sharing with the children.
Much thanks! Let me know if the teachers need any follow-up information about the nature topics here (or others) and I’d be happy to forward it on to you.
Do you offer any programs for a possible Day Camp outing? We normally have about 40 children ages 5-11.
