Leaf Hunt: Common Trees in Illinois

Activities at HomeOutdoor Activities

Fall is a wonderful time to take walks, especially since the weather has been so nice! I wanted to go on a leaf hunt with my kids but I’m not great at identifying what types of trees the leaves fell from, so I started looking for a simple sheet that we could refer to (like a leaf scavenger hunt) and couldn’t find a good one. Instead, we decided to pick up as many different leaves as we could and make our own. The kind people from The Morton Arboretum helped me to label the leaves. You can print out this page and take it along on your walks around the neighborhood or in the forest preserve. Try to find all the leaves on the page! Click here to download the Leaf Hunt (pdf file) and print it out. (You also could click on the image below and print it from the site, but the quality won’t be quite as good.)
