While on a hike we will search for wildlife and signs of animals. Then learn about animals that have called Lake County home in the past. Finally, we will take a closer look at plants using magnifying glasses.  This badge covers requirements 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Badges not provided.   


This program is available September–November and March–May at Independence Grove in Libertyville and Ryerson Woods in Riverwoods.
