Wildlife in Motion guides adults in a unique outdoor experience with their young ones. Each session highlights a different way animals move. Today's topic: HOPPERS & JUMPERS! Through hands-on nature activities, exploration, stories, crafts and interaction with live animals, we will try catching a few hoppers and jumpers so we can take a closer look.

This program is for children ages 4-6 by the first day of the program with an adult.

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

Please register each child separately. Adult supervision required. Cost is per child with one free adult. Limit two children per adult. 


Meet in the large program room in the Welcome Center.

Bring water and dress appropriately for outdoor exploration! This program features insect netting in tall grasses, so please wear long pants and closed toed shoes.

Please complete and turn in all forms at least one week prior to the start of the session.

Forms and itineraries available at Summer Programs - Education Programs | Lake County Forest Preserves (
