Explore the Forest

Crabtree Nature Center in Barrington Hills is celebrating the Forest Preserves of Cook County. Join us June 2 from noon to 4 p.m. as we Explore the Forest to see the many different facets of the forest preserves at this free event.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Find out about recreational activities from tree climbing and archery to fishing, camping, and wildlife encounters. Pick up a trail map and get a bike check-over courtesy of LL Bean.

Learn about the work that goes on behind the scenes to manage the preserves. Try out wildlife tracking radars, climb onto giant equipment used in habitat restoration and meet with Master Gardeners. Special guests from the Chicago Botanic Garden and Brookfield Zoo will highlight their role in the preserves.

The event is part of Chicago Wilderness' Leave No Child Inside initiative to promote children's connections with nature. Spend time in our Nature Play area where you can climb a spider web, build forts and follow a story trail.
