Sand Ridge Nature Center
Can you believe we are on the brink of another changing season? I enjoy that first crisp fall day. I enjoy that first snow fall. I really enjoy the first fresh day of spring after a light rain that washes off the winter dust and breathes freshen in the day. And then there is summer – awesome.
Students may have school to keep them busy now, but there are also plenty of fall activities at local park districts and forest preserves to entertain them after the bell rings. Even parents with little ones too young for school can find fun local activities to enjoy together.
My family’s summer days are flying by and have been filled with backyard playtime, trips to the local parks and a few mini adventures.
A few weeks ago, my father-in-law attended a class on Hegewisch genealogy at the Hegewisch branch of the Chicago Public Library. He is already a big genealogy buff but said he picked up a few tips from the presenter and that a good-sized crowd came out to the event.
This week, the Forest Preserves of Cook County will hold special events and volunteer workdays to celebrate Earth Day 2014, which is today.
When school is out for the summer, there are always more activities for kids. Of course, that also means a lot more kids running around and longer lines.
