Environmental Education

The Kendall County Forest Preserve District’s Environmental Education team is always planning and hosting events for your family, school, and community. We’d love to see you at an event, or you can visit our nature center, Laws of Nature, in Kendall County Historic Courthouse in Yorkville. We offer public programs, programs for school groups ages pre-k through high school, and adult and family focused programs and events. We strive to create programs that interest community members of all ages and backgrounds and would love to hear your suggestions or comments.   FP_1

Join us for our Winter public programs!  Registration is now open for the Kendall County Forest Preserve District’s Winter Break Camps. Our nature themed camps are wildly popular, introducing children to nature, wildlife, and outdoor recreational activities.

Each fun-filled camp session features nature hikes, games, crafts, exploration and discovery. Camps are offered for children ages 4-9 at Hoover Forest Preserve in Yorkville from January 3-5. Make sure to register for these camps by December 20!

We offer school programs for pre-k through high school. Programs include learning about bird beaks, Native Americans, and different types of habitats, and are available both in your classroom and as a field trip to the forest preserves.
