The Forest Preserve District of Kane County invites area seniors to join the free monthly "Senior Stroll" program.
On the first Thursday of each month, Forest Preserve District naturalists lead a leisurely walk through a Kane County Forest Preserve, and share ecology highlights along the way. The strolls last about an hour, with social time and refreshments following the walk.
The next "Senior Stroll" takes place from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 4, at Blackberry Maples Forest Preserve, 43W231 Main St., Elburn.
All seniors are welcome. Registration is not required for this program.
The next Senior Stroll will be Oct. 2 at Glenwood Park Forest Preserve, 1644 S. River St. in Batavia. It will be followed by the Nov. 6 program at Tyler Creek Forest Preserve, 401 Davis Road, Elgin. Meet at the lower shelter.
In December, "Senior Stroll" holds a holiday gathering at Creek Bend Nature Center at LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve, 37W700 Dean St., St. Charles. Bring a store-bought dish to pass. They will share food, fellowship and festivities at this annual "Senior Stroll" tradition.
