Join Roving Naturalists with MCCD in November
Stop by for a visit with one of the McHenry County Conservation District's "Roving Naturalists" at a new conservation area each week in November.
Ask questions about the fall landscape, animals that are out and about, and get recommendations for a hike.
It is designed for adults and families; kids younger than 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
No registration is required for these free, drop-in programs, but "Check Before You Go" as cancellations may occur due to weather or staff emergencies.
Check MCCDistrict.org or in the online registration system.
From 10 a.m. to noon Saturdays, it will be Marengo Ridge Conservation Area Shelter No. 1, 2411 N.
