McHenry County Conservation District offers outdoor fun with yoga, bike rides, hikes and more this spring
Don't miss out on all the outdoor recreational programming available as the weather warms up.
The McHenry County Conservation District has programs for all ages and abilities, allowing participants to get outdoors and enjoy nature while incorporating healthy movement.
• Join in "Hike for the Health of It" at Boone Creek Conservation Area in Bull Valley. Research continually shows that spending time outdoors away from the hustle and bustle of daily life contributes to a healthy mind and body. Join us for a fast-paced hike to benefit your physical and mental well-being. Stop for occasional breaks to catch your breath and learn about the site.
• With "Morning Yoga," start off your Saturday morning with a relaxing hour of gentle yoga while taking in all the sights and sounds of Marengo Ridge Conservation Area in Marengo. Bring a large towel or yoga mat.
• Grab your bike and join Prairie Trail Riders as they explore the entire Prairie Trail Bike Path from North Branch Conservation Area south to Algonquin over the course of five trips. Register for one ride or the entire series. Ride the entire length and receive a Prairie Trail sticker. They will ride 10 to 14 miles each day, starting and ending at the same location. Participants ages 13 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
Limited spots are available for these outdoor recreation programs happening soon. Registration is required for all participants. They ask that participants wear a face covering and practice social distancing during participation.
