Join other nature lovers for the Friends of Thorn Creek Woods annual gathering, pot luck and program on Sunday, November 5 from noon to 3 p.m. After a short Friends meeting, which will be open to the public, join us for a discussion of gray and red foxes and coyotes in our northeastern Illinois region featuring John Yunger, professor of Biology at Governors State University.

Bring a pot luck dish to share. The program is free and open to those ages 12 to adult; call or email to register by November 3.

This presentation is sponsored by the Jim Marzuki Memorial Fund, established by Friends of Thorn Creek Woods to enhance our public programming.

Meet with other nature lovers for a short information report about what has been going on in the preserve, plans for the future and how people can help out.

“Old” supporters of Friends of thorn Creek Woods, bring someone new as a guest.  New folks will find out what makes Thorn Creek unique! Members of this historic organization “got the ball rolling” several decades ago to save the woods, and continue to support Thorn Creek Nature Center and Thorn Creek Woods Nature Preserve.  Thorn Creek’s many volunteers are an indispensable part of what makes Thorn Creek “tick”.

For more information or to register for programs, contact Thorn Creek Nature Center, 247 Monee Rd, Park Forest, 708-747-6320, email [email protected], or stop in the nature center between noon and 4 p.m. on Friday or Sunday. Please call before you plan to visit the nature center. Three and a half miles of Thorn Creek trails are open daily from dawn to dusk.
