This falls under our usual day of the month slot (first Tuesday of the month, April through November) but we’ve allowed two hours instead of just one.  While this event is not truly a tour–it is a lot of fun!  You’re welcome to join us this Tuesday for a hayride around the property given by our forestry staff.  Tours are given on a first-come, first-served basis.  If you do have a group of 10 or more individuals who would like to go on the hayride please call our registrar to set a specific time slot aside for you and your group:  630-260-8162.  Tour departs from the Visitors Center parking lot.

No registration required for this program.
