Take A Child Outside, Public Lands Day Encourages Families to Explore the Natural World
Turn the screens off and get into nature. That is the message behind the nationally recognized week-long celebration, Take A Child Outside, from Sept. 24-30.
Families are encouraged to explore the many natural amenities of the St. Charles Park District, and with more than 415 acres of natural area diverse with prairies, woodlands, savannahs and wetlands, plus 20 miles of trails, you won't have to go far to surround yourself in the sights and sounds of nature.
The fall season is also prescription burn season in the St. Charles Park District's natural areas, but that doesn't mean burning will actually take place as planned. Conducting a controlled burn in any of the park district's 415-plus acres of natural areas is a complex process and dependent on numerous environmental conditions. Temperature, precipitation, humidity levels, wind speeds and wind direction are just a few factors that all have to align in order for the burn to happen.
