Come join us at our Horton Grove Nature Preserve for the December Get Wild Family program! We will be meeting right at dusk and will be taking a short night time walk to talk about nocturnal animals and their senses. Once night has officially fallen then we will even do some star gazing and see what all we can find.
We are so excited to host this event and are looking forward to having you on trail. Please remember to bring a water bottle, warm layers, a blanket or chair to sit on, and a mask if you have not been vaccinated!
