McHenry County Conservation District's winter program offerings are loaded with both indoor and outdoor nature enthusiast adventures.
Find out "What's Up with Weasels," or what life was like in "Winter on the Frontier," take an "Introduction to Snowshoeing," or try "Hunting like a Wolf." Go on a "Mousewalk" or spend "An Afternoon with the Short-eared Owls."
Check "Climb a Kame" off your bucket list or make your sweetheart a "Natural Valentine." Come out to "Make Your Own Wooden Toys," take part in a "Winter Scavenger Hunt" or join them for a "Solstice Night Hike." There is something for everyone and most programs are free.
