Grab a net and magnifying glass! There are animals to discover underwater! Many types of animals actually begin their lives in rivers, lakes and ponds. Join us to see what lives in and around the pond attached to the Des Plaines River at Isle a la Cache preserve.

We will use nets to scoop for aquatic critters and take a closer look at them. We may even catch a frog or two!

The dipping nets and viewing containers will be provided.

All animals will be released back into the pond at the end of the program.
Event Requirements:
Registration is required by calling 815.886.1467 by Thursday, May 11.

The dipping nets and viewing containers will be provided. Please dress in clothes and shoes that can get wet and/or dirty.

This program takes place outdoors on uneven, natural terrain. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should mention their request when registering, or submit a request online no later than 48 hours before the program.
