There’s something uplifting about how brightly the sun shines on clear days in January. The air is cold and crisp, but longer days begin their return and December’s gray skies start to fade as we hunker down and wait for spring. To breathe in some of this January air while working up some new energy for the new year, check out the Winter Wonders Scavenger Hike coming up on Sunday, January 20th.
It’s a naturalist-guided tour happening from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, January 20th, at the Crabtree Nature Center, which you’ll find at 3 Stover Road in Barrington Hills. We’re invited to join the group on a winter walk through the woods to look for animal tracks, listen for birds and soak up the more peaceful sights and sounds of the post-holiday season.
For more information about the hike, call 847-381-6592.
