This is a rare glimpse at a mysterious site that is closer than you think. Three stories will be revealed at this program – Will County settlers from the 1800s and their burial customs, what a prairie does when it’s fenced off for a hundred years, and modern preservation efforts for this state nature preserve.
Registration is required by calling 815.886.1467 by Thursday, May 18.
This program takes place outdoors on crushed limestone and paved trails, as well as some uneven natural surfaces. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should call 708.747.6320.
