All ages can join an 'Ethnobotany Exploration' at Tekakwitha Woods

Join a naturalist with the Forest Preserve District of Kane County to walk back in time and admire the woods as not only a place of beauty and shelter, but as a provider of food and medicine.

Since time immemorial, the stories of people and plants have intertwined in terms of shelter, weaponry, ceremony, food and medicine.

Before European colonization of North America, Native Americans were nourished and physically healed by the land.

Come out to Tekakwitha Woods Forest Preserve on Thursday, April 29, from 4-5 p.m. to learn more during the "Ethnobotany Exploration" nature program.

This program is free and for all ages. Advance registration is required.

To register, call (630) 444-3190 or email

Tekakwitha Woods Forest Preserve is located at 35W076 Villa Maria Rd., St. Charles.
