Kane County forest district to host scavenger hunt for all ages

Volunteers help the Kane County Forest Preserve plant 500 trees Saturday April 22, 2023 at Tekakwitha Woods Forest Preserve in St. Charles.

The Forest Preserve District of Kane County will host an outdoor scavenger hunt from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, May 11, at Tekakwitha Woods Forest Preserve.

Tekakwitha Woods Forest Preserve is located at 35W076 Villa Maria Road in St. Charles.

Attendees will first meet a naturalist at the preserve shelter to gather directions and supplies. They will then hit the trails to see if they can find everything on the list. Once attendees complete their quest, they’ll head back to the shelter to claim a prize on a first-come, first-served basis, according to a news release.
