Eco-Explorers - Children ages 8-12

In these fun-filled Saturdays, children learn about nature and how they relate to the natural environment. Children will participate in games, activities and experiments while exploring the park's wildlife and habitats. Participants will discover natural habitats and gardens, practice orienteering, learn knot tying and hopefully approach the natural world with more awareness.  Kids will walk away from this class with many more skills to help them explore the outdoors and spark their interest in the natural world around them.

Saturdays, 12:30-2:00pm. Fee: $22. 

Register online through Chicago Park District or sign up in-person at Kilbourn Park.
