white oak Nature Programs for Adults

Haunted Who-Done-It?

We're teaming up with the Geneva Public Library to offer nature programs for adults in their twenties and thirties. Amongst the woodlands, the prairie, and fog-covered wetlands lie clues to an unsolved mystery. Join other adults as we go on a fun scavenger hunt around LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve. We'll learn how to read the "clues" of wildlife, then apply them to our own who-done-it back at the nature center. Advance registration is required. Call 630-444-3190 or email to register.
