State Park Interpretive Programs

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources offers interpretive programs at various sites throughout the state. Depending on the season, you can take a spring wildflower hike, participate in a voyager canoe weekend or go cross country skiing at select state parks. Interpreters at these sites lead guided hikes and tours through the park's trails and facilities, offer on-site and off-site school group programs, coordinate special events and provide outdoor education and recreational programs throughout the year.
