Education, Hiking, Wildlife Viewing, Arts & Crafts
Did you know that soils are named and classified just like species of plants and animals? Illinois alone has over 700 different types of soil.
Come learn how soils are formed and their important role in nature. Then, on a hike, become a soil scientist and examine actual soil samples to understand the story told by the layers of soil. Build an edible Mud Pie.
Lots of fun is planned for everyone including refreshments, a presentation, activities, a hike and our spring raffle.
The program is sponsored by Friends of Thorn Creek Woods.
