Find out what the slopes, depressions, stream channels, and tree communities in Thorn Creek Woods can tell us on the Story of the Landscape Hike held Sunday, December 3 from 1 to 3 p.m.

In 1957 May Theilgaard Watts, naturalist at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois wrote the enchanting book Reading the Landscape. She wrote “there is good reading on the land…The records are written in the forests, in fencerows, in gardens, in tree rings.”

Join us on this fall hike to read the landscape of Thorn Creek Woods with Olivier Caron, Quaternary Geologist with the Illinois State Geological Survey and Thorn Creek naturalist April Richards.

This program is free, for all ages and registration is required by Friday, December 1.  For more information or to register for this program, please contact Thorn Creek Nature Center, 247 Monee Road, Park Forest at 708-747-6320 or [email protected].
