Forest preserve features St. James Farm after dark
Trail trekkers can listen for the sounds of wildlife at night and see historic buildings illuminated for the evening during the St. James Farm After Dark program from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14, at St. James Farm Forest Preserve, Butterfield and Winfield roads in Warrenville.
"This program offers two special opportunities: experiencing a forest preserve after normal closing hours and traveling snowy trails that will be groomed just for the event," says Nate Hambel, a senior ranger with the DuPage County Forest Preserve District and one of the program's organizers.
"We hope that both new and returning visitors enjoy a unique experience and are inspired to come back to St. James Farm throughout the year."
St. James Farm After Dark is free for all ages, but adults must accompany children younger than 18. Participants are invited to use their own cross-country skis or snowshoes or travel by foot.
Snowshoes will be available for rent for $5 a person, which requires advance reservation by calling Visitor Services weekdays at (630) 933-7248. A warming fire will be available. Participants should use St. James Farm's main entrance on Winfield Road, north of Butterfield Road.
