About this event


We're sorry, but this program is over. The last meeting was Sunday, June 23, 2024.

You won't need to sail off through night and day or in and out of weeks. Will County is where the wildflowers are! Jack in the pulpit, Virginia waterleaf and Solomon’s seal – our wildflowers have stories to tell! Journey to Messenger Woods, a top spot to seek wildflowers. Join a naturalist for a hike to find wildflowers and hear stories of how these beauties were named, their uses through time, and other lore and legends. These ephemeral blooms are beautiful but fleeting. Join us each month for more chapters in the ever-changing tale of wildflowers as old ones fade and new ones bloom.

Look for other preserves in this series or choose your own adventure. Visit the same preserve each month to see the changes unfold over time; or mix it up and enjoy a different preserve for the full story of Will County wildflowers.

The trail at Messenger Woods is approximately 1 mile in length on natural surfaces. Spring rains can make the trail muddy; please dress accordingly. Program will begin at Hawthorn Grove, the back shelter.

Ages 10 or older.

If you have any questions, please call us at 815-722-4121.
