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.

Monarch way stations are identified milkweed hot spots that provide valuable habitat and nectar sources for monarchs. Staff will be on hand  to share information and activities on monarchs, milkweed and pollinators.

Search for monarch eggs and caterpillars in action. Take home handouts about how you can help monarchs and other pollinators. Free milkweed seed packets also will be available to take home and plant.

These programs are offered in partnership with the Will County Audubon Society.
