There’s always something going on at the Forest Preserve District of Kane County. On Sunday, June 3, 8am-12pm, kids are invited to get “Hooked on Fishing” during the annual learn-to-fish event at Oakhurst Forest Preserve. Fishing gear and bait will be supplied, and light refreshments will be provided.

Then, on Saturday, June 23, 12-3pm, celebrate and learn about native pollinators and plants at the family-friendly Monarchs & Milkweed Festival at LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve in St. Charles. The Forest Preserve District will be giving away milkweed plants. There will also be guided hikes in the prairie, crafts, butterfly house kits, live music and food trucks. Admission to this event is free. To learn more, call 630-444-3190.​

The goal of the Forest Preserve District of Kane County is to preserve and restore the nature of Kane County. The Kane County forest preserves are open every day, sunrise to sunset.
