Byron Forest Preserve District




Creek Walk at Howard Colman Hall Preserve

Let's splash through the creek! We'll walk a short distance from the bridge to find what lives in the water. We'll have nets and buckets and guides. Bring boots or shoes that can get wet! The creek might be somewhat deep at this time of the year, which makes it more exiting. Parents must accompany children under 10 years.
