Want to See Kane County’s Biggest Trees? Register Now!

Illinois may be known as the Prairie State, but we’ve got some awesome trees here, as well as grasses.

Come along on a guided hike to see some of the biggest trees in Kane County. You and Kane County Forest Preserve naturalists will visit the sites of some of our local champions in the Kane County Big Tree Program.

During the walk, we’ll do a little tree identification and show you how trees are measured in the Big Tree Program. Join us on one, or all three of these walks:

  • Saturday, Oct. 8, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Bliss Woods Forest Preserve, located at 5S660 Bliss Road, Sugar Grove.
  • Wednesday, Oct. 12, from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Hannaford Woods Forest Preserve, located at 5S002 Merrill Road, Sugar Grove.
  • Saturday, Oct. 22, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Glenwood Park Forest Preserve, located at 1644 S. River St., Batavia.
