Park Forest, IL—(ENEWSPF)—July 13, 2017. Calling all kids ages 50 years and older!   Join us for Nature Camp for Seniors: Wild Animal Tracks on Monday, August 7 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.   We’ll put ourselves in the paws of Thorn Creek’s woodland creatures to discover clues to wild animals’ identities and explore adaptations animals have developed to find food and survive through the different seasons. We’ll make plaster replicas of tracks to take home.

Lunch will be provided.  Participants should be prepared to walk ½ mile outdoors on natural surface trails across uneven terrain.  Program is open to those age 50 years and up.  Fee is $5 per person and registration is required by Saturday, August 5. 

Thorn Creek Nature Center is open Friday and Sunday, noon to 4 p.m.  Trails are open daily from dawn to dusk.  For more information, contact Thorn Creek Nature Center, 247 Monee Road, Park Forest, at 708-747-6320 or
