About this event


We're sorry, but this program is over. The last meeting was Saturday, December 16, 2023.

Bring the family for a hike as evening turns into night in the forest. Bundle up and strap on your favorite hiking boots as we set out in search of our elusive owl friends. Discover just how many species reside in Will County and how to differentiate them. Learn how big they can get, what they look like and where you can find them. Afterward, warm up by a fire and enjoy roasting marshmallows.

Be sure to dress for weather and trail conditions. The hike will be approximately 1 mile to 2 miles over uneven, natural terrain.

The program will begin at the furthest parking lot, at Hawthorn Grove Shelter.

If you have any questions, please call us at 815-722-4121.

If you, or your family member’s, experience in the program would be improved with the addition of reasonable inclusive accommodations please follow this link for a request page: Request an accommodation or inclusion service.
