Age Requirements:
All Ages
Activity Type:
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.
Event Requirements:
No registration is required for this program.

Part of the program will be held indoors in an accessible facility. The guided hike will be on natural surface trails across uneven terrain for approximately 2 miles. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should submit a request on-line no later than 48 hours before the program.
