Fees and Registration
How do animals decide that it is time to migrate? How do they prepare for their perilous journeys? Explore the Arboretum at night as we search for answers to questions about migration. In the classroom, discuss migrational instincts and the benefits as well as hazards of migration. We will examine the effects of urban development, human-made obstacles and the strain that is put on vulnerable animal populations. Outdoors, bats, birds and insects, as well as other lesser known migrants, will be encountered as we visit various habitats within the Arboretum grounds after nightfall.
Both Denis Kania and Renae Frigo have been teaching naturalist related topics for over twenty years. Denis is the Manager of Natural Areas for the St. Charles Park District and Renae heads the naturalist department for Glen Ellyn Park District.
