In September, the program will focus on seeds, and the different kinds of them. “Homeschool Explorations: Seeds” is from 10-11:30 a.m.Thursday, Sept. 11,  at Blackberry Maples Forest Preserve. The preserve is located at 43W231 Main St., Elburn.

In October, the theme is owls of Illinois. The program runs Thursday, Oct. 9, from 10-11:30 a.m. at  Tekakwitha Woods Forest Preserve, 35W076 Villa Marie Rd., St. Charles.

And in November, students will study white-tailed deer. The program is from 10-11:30 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 13,
at Hampshire Forest Preserve, 44W880 Allen Road, Hampshire.
