Keep your eyes open! A troop of endangered species has migrated to Snapper Pond Trail at Goodenow Grove Nature Preserve. Endangered species aren’t just in exotic places. Learn about the animals that need our help right here in Illinois. Start at Plum Creek Nature Center to grab a quest card, then hit the trail to do your best to find all the animals. Come back to tell us your favorite endangered species to earn a prize.
