Kane County Forest Preserve District is offering a couple of August strolls through Muirhead Springs Forest Preserve.

Seniors Stroll

The Forest Preserve District of Kane County invites area seniors to join us for our free monthly “Senior Stroll” program on Thursday, Aug. 6.

On the first Thursday of each month, Forest Preserve naturalists lead a leisurely walk through a Kane County forest preserve, and share ecology highlights along the way. The strolls last about an hour, with social time and refreshments following the walk.

The Aug. 6 “Senior Stroll” takes place at Muirhead Forest Preserve from 10 a.m. to noon. All seniors are welcome. Registration is not required for this program.

Muirhead Forest Preserve is located at 42W855 Bahr Road, Hampshire.
