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: SWIMMERS! We will use a dip net to capture and observe (before returning) a few animals that swim, and learn how they move in the water.

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 at the trailhead kiosk.

Bring water and dress appropriately for outdoor exploration! This program features pond scooping, so please wear closed toe shoes with heel straps and clothes that can get wet and muddy.

Please complete and turn in all forms at the start of the session.

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