Spring Valley Family Programs

Spring Valley offers family programs. Programs change seasonally.

Spend time in nature with your family! The following programs have a special family rate. By registering one child, it is assumed that a minimum of two people (one adult and one child) or a maximum of four people are attending. Please do not register additional people; they may pay the day of the program.

Call 847/985-2100 or see the Spring Valley pages in the program guide for additional program information.

Breakfast with the Birds

Enjoy an early morning walk to look for Spring Valley’s colorful migratory birds such as warblers and orioles. Then, sit down to a light breakfast on the porch of Merkle Cabin to watch birds at the feeders. Both novice and experienced bird-watchers are welcome. Binoculars will be provided. Children younger than 10 must be accompanied by a paid adult. Meet at the Nature Center.

This class is for all ages. Cost is $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents.
