With Dr. George Morton.

Imagine the Sunday before Independence Day, beautiful weather, lots of family around and you'll be looking for an activity in advance of the parade. Plan an educational, informational walk in the legendary Skokie River Prairie Reserve and find out what all the excitement is about. George is always a font of knowledge in our natural areas and you will be certain to be informed, entertained and worked-out by the end of the tour. Sunday July 2, 2:00 p.m. at the Reserve parking lot at 298 Rockland Road, just East of Mariani.
