|Prairie Burning at Spring Valley Nature Center|
This week, Earth Day and Arbor Day serve as reminders of how important conservation is. There are many wonderful events throughout the area for you to experience nature while learning about conservation with your family. A couple of weeks ago, we attended a prescribed prairie burning at Spring Valley Nature Center in Schaumburg. Prairie burning is very necessary and vital to the prairie ecosystem. We found the event to be a brilliant and powerful celebration of the awesome power of nature! This weekend provides so many opportunities to celebrate nature while creating family memories--get out there!
Here are some affordable ideas for family fun this weekend:
Friday, April 25
Spend a lovely family evening at the Friday Night Campfire at Stillman Nature Center in South Barrington from 7:30PM-8:30PM. Enjoy stories and roasted marshmallows! The event suggests a $2 pp donation.
The Morton Arboretum has a ton of festivities this weekend for Arbor Day including Dress Like a Tree, Get in Free on this Friday (Friday only). You can read about all of the fun in our previous post. Hope you can visit and hug a tree!
