Winter is a wonderful time to explore the preserves. You’ll find snow covered tree tops, animal prints in the snow and you’ll experience a serene environment that will take your stresses away.
Want to start the 2017 year off on the right foot? Join us for a New Year’s Morning Hike in the wintry woods on Sunday, Jan. 1, from 9-10 a.m. at LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve. On this special holiday, you’re welcome to bring the whole family — grandkids and grandparents! We’ll look for the first animal tracks made in the new year’s snow and discover the surprises that Mother Nature offers! There will be coffee and cocoa in the nature center, after the hike. Creek Bend Nature Center is located within LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve at 37W700 Dean St., St. Charles.
