Event details

Join us monthly for nature-themed programs for 3- to 5-year-olds and their adults. This month we will celebrate the birthday of our forest preserve mascot, Willy the Woodchuck, by exploring groundhogs, or do you say woodchucks? It’s a party with games, activities, cake and more! Will Willy make an appearance, or did he see his shadow and go back to his burrow for six more weeks of winter?
