Take part in this ever popular class with seining expert and long-time CFC volunteer, Tom Vanderpoel. We will meet at CFC, drive to a local site, and use seining nets to see what is in the water. Will there be frogs, fish, mussels, larvae? Be prepared to get wet and muddy. Please dress according to the weather— layers are best. Water shoes/sandals/boots or shoes are required) and must be worn at all times. Bring your own drinking water and use mosquito spray at home.
This class is open to children ages 6 and older. Caregivers are required to attend. Meet at CFC headquarters, 459 West Highway 22, Lake Barrington. We are the white farmhouse across for Good Shepherd Hospital. Once the class has gathered, we will carpool to the site. Please not that there are no bathroom facilities once we leave CFC.
The outing is free; however, class size is limited and fills quickly so please register early!
