Event details

It’s the holiday season, and turkey might be on the menu. This program should provide you with just enough turkey talking points so you can get through those fancy meals without having to resort to talking about the weather. You’ll learn natural history, fun facts and what makes a wild turkey different from a farm-raised turkey.

Event requirements

Registration required by Thursday, Nov. 2: 815-722-4121. 


The program will take place inside the nature center and outdoors on a short hike in search of the perfect wild turkey habitat. The hike will be less than 1 mile over uneven, natural terrain. Hidden Oaks Nature Center is an accessible facility. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should submit a request online no later than 48 hours before the program.
