'Howl at the Wolf Oak' fest taking place Friday
The Land Conservancy of McHenry County is hosting "Howl at the Wolf Oak" from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24, at Wolf Oak Woods, 9100 Route 120 in Woodstock.
The event is free and open to the public. Participants can register to attend by Sept. 22 at conservemc.org/howl-at-the-wolf-oak/.
Activities include a bonfire, guided hikes and family nature activities. Chili, sides and s'mores will be served. And, yes, there will be an opportunity for participants to "howl" at the Wolf Oak near the end of the event.
The site's namesake tree, the Wolf Oak, is more than 300 years old and existed when wolves and buffalo roamed McHenry County. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the history and diverse habitats of Wolf Oak Woods and the work that is being done to preserve it.
