Park Forest, IL—(ENEWSPF)— The Village of Park Forest has partnered with ME4E, Multidisciplinary Education for the Environment, to offer summer enrichment camps from June 16 through August 8. There will be a unique "green" theme each week. Emily Kenny, co-founder of ME4E says, "These are great change of pace from other enrichment opportunities and all programs are designed to help campers have fun while learning."

Campers will spend each day outside developing a better understanding of the complexity of the Central Park Wetlands, a 45 acre wetland/peat bog.

"It is one of the best municipal wetland projects in the Chicago region," says Kenny, "so don’t let your child miss out. Nurture the budding naturalist in your family and discover a local natural gem"

ME4E staff has over 22 years of experience leading hands-on environmental programs for all ages. To learn more about these exciting new programs and what else ME4E has to offer, visit www.ME4E.org.
