Rusty Rodeo - 8.06.22

Time: 11:00 AM

Location: Glenwood Park Forest Preserve

There are underwater invaders in our local streams and rivers and we want you to help us find them! The culprit is the Rusty Crayfish, a tiny aquatic creature that is an invasive species in Kane County. 


Help naturalists round up as many Rusty Crayfish as we can find, in an effort to reduce their numbers. Families are encouraged to join us in the water with dip nets to collect, identify and remove some Rusties. You might even find the biggest of these varmints or collect the greatest number of them. 


Prepare to get wet! Wear closed-toe shoes and clothes that can get muddy.
