Learn about animal architecture with Kane County Forest Preserve naturalist
Enjoy virtual program offerings, right from the comfort of your home, with the "Nature, Virtually Everywhere!" program series offered by the Forest Preserve District of Kane County.
For those that can't come out to the Kane County forest preserves, they will bring the preserves to you! They will offer a series of webinars, slideshows, live hikes and other virtual programming by the naturalist staff.
Virtual programs coming up include:
• "Animal Architecture" (PowerPoint Video) at 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 17. Many animals create magnificent structures in which to live, store food, and raise their young. Learn about some of the animals that build these wonders, right here in Kane County's natural areas. To view this video, go to bit.ly/youtube_forestpreserve
• "Dazzled by the Stars!" (Zoom webinar) from 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 23. Amateur astronomer and published author Bob King of Duluth, Minnesota brings the night sky to life in this all-ages program. King will first explain how to locate night-sky features using sky maps and digital apps. He'll provide an overview of the planets, stars and constellations of the summer sky and share exciting news about viewing a recently-discovered comet.
