Join the Forest Preserve District of Kane County this fall for the popular nature program series, Homeschool Explorations.
Each month, the home-school program focuses on a different topic at a different forest preserve, allowing home-school children to interact with local nature areas and learn about varying themes.
In September, the focus will be on seeds, and the different kinds of them.
"Homeschool Explorations: Seeds" will be offered from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 11, at Blackberry Maples Forest Preserve, 43W231 Main Street Road, Elburn.
In October, the theme is "Owls of Illinois." The program runs from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 9, at Tekakwitha Woods Forest Preserve, 35W076 Villa Marie Road, St. Charles.
And in November, they will study white-tailed deer. The program will be offered from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 13, at Hampshire Forest Preserve, 44W880 Allen Road, Hampshire.
