Green Tips

Green Tip #15
Enjoy Spring Weather

Last week, Macon County Illinois got a good dose of Spring with warmer temperatures and sunshine. What a great time to get your kids involved in some “green” activities!

Go on a hike at one of your conservation areas and introduce your children to the local plants and animals. We have already seen deer, turtles, snakes, songbirds, waterfowl, hawk, buzzards, and many more signs of spring!

Some of the spring wildflowers are days away from blooming. You can check them out along a woodland trail. Visit different ecosystems (prairie, forest and wetland) to see different kinds of plants and animals.

View maps of the conservation areas to find a site near you.
