Naturalist Adventure Series Program

Each month at Charleston Falls Preserve a Park District Naturalist holds an education program on a different topic. Participants can stop by anytime between 1 – 4 p.m. during the program and complete hands-on learning about the topic of the month. Programs range from learning about rocks to learning how to navigate using a hand held G.P.S. unit. Click here for program listings and filter by Charleston Falls Preserve.
