Experience the meaning of Restoration in all it definitions. Connect to nature, to community. Enjoy a night hike, morning tours, campfires, silly games, songs, a bit of history, a bit of reflection, restore nature and yourself. Join McHenry County Conservation District for an epic experience (not epic work) at the Weekend of Restoration event Women in Conservation – Today, September 15–17 from 7pm Friday to Noon Sunday at Lost Valley Visitor Center in Glacial Park, Rt. 31 and Harts Rd., Ringwood. During this amazing weekend, we will hold a celebratory breakfast in honor of Women in Conservation Today and hear inspirational stories a few of the talented women whose lives and efforts have changed and will change the natural world of the Chicago Region for the better.
