The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Event Details

Join us every month for activities geared towards children ages 3-5. A new nature theme is chosen every month with hands-on activities including a hike, story, games, dancing, art and more. Be prepared for indoor and outdoor activities. We encourage experiencing all types of weather, rain or shine, so please dress accordingly. This also is a great opportunity for parents and children to meet in a natural setting to exchange ideas and get to know each other. Indoor facilities are accessible; outdoor activities may take place on natural surfaces across uneven terrain.

Event Requirements

Registration is required by calling 815.722.9470 the Friday before each program.


Be prepared for indoor and outdoor activities. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should mention their request when registering, or submit a request online no later than 48 hours before the program.
