Are you looking for something the whole family can do for free on a Saturday afternoon?

Join the McHenry County Conservation District for a "Lost Valley Venture" from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturdays, Feb. 2, 9, 16 or 23 at Lost Valley Visitor Center in Glacial Park, Route 31 and Harts Road, Ringwood.

This family exploration program includes a nature lesson, game, and activity based around this month's topic: Animal Tracks. If the weather allows, guests will also go for a short outdoor exploratory hike with staff, so dress for the weather and walking. No registration required. All ages are welcome.

Topics change monthly: March -- Squirrels, April -- Signs of spring, May -- Nesting time. This program is intended for families and cannot accommodate organized groups. Youth groups should contact Prairieview Education Center at (815) 479-5779 to schedule a program for their group.
