Event details

We are taking Wild Child on the road this season, visiting different preserves around Will County. Answer the call of your wild child by getting your toddler outside with this monthly nature-themed program. Join a naturalist for hands-on activities such as games, stories, crafts, hikes and more! The last Friday of each month, we will have something new for you and your child to explore while getting a little dirt on those hands and knees. Dress accordingly and be prepared for all outdoor activities, as well as experiencing all weather types (rain, shine and even snow).
