Gettin' Close to Crayfish at Fel-Pro RRR
If you like getting outdoors, exploring and getting your hands muddy, the "Crafty Crayfish" program is for you!
If you’re crazy about crayfish and crawdads, grab your boots and slosh on over to Fel-Pro RRR Conservation Area from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 9.
McHenry County Conservation District is hosting a “Crafty Crayfish” program where participants will learn all about the four crayfish species common to Northern Illinois.
During this afternoon, guests will dig deeper into the lifestyles of crayfish, who are relatives of the lobster.
Fel-Pro RRR Conservation Area is located at 1520 Crystal Lake Ave., Cary. The 227-acre preserve has hiking trails, a pond and small lake.
Visitors should meet by the pond for this free event, and be certain to dress for the outdoor weather and mud! This program is geared toward children ages six to 13, accompanied by an adult.
Fee for non-MCCD residents is $5.
Participants should register in advance on the MCCD website.
