Spend your summer days hiking in the “boots of a biologist” to learn about a variety of Lake County animal and plant species through hands-on investigations and community science activities. Get dirty and have fun as you test out the equipment and techniques we use to find and evaluate plant and animal species in the forest preserves.

This program is for children ages 10–11 by the first day of the program. 

We are unable to make age exceptions because the activities are geared to cognitive, emotional and physical abilities of this program's specific age range.
