We are taking Wild Child on the road this season, visiting different preserves around Will County. Answer the call of your wild child by getting your toddler outside with this monthly nature-themed program. Join a naturalist for hands-on activities such as games, stories, crafts, hikes and more! The last Friday of each month we will have something new for you and your child to explore while getting a little dirt on those hands and knees.

Fee: Free! Age: Ages 3-5. (Children must be accompanied by a registered adult.) Registration required by Wednesday, April 24, by calling 815-722-4121 or online.

Register everyone in your group, both children and adults. Dress accordingly and be prepared for all outdoor activities, as well as experiencing all weather types (rain, shine and even snow).

Trails are on natural, uneven surfaces. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should submit a request online no later than 48 hours before the program.
