Fullersburg Woods

A child’s laughter, the gleam of discovery in someone’s eye, and the awe inspired by natural wonders are shared by volunteers at the Fullersburg Woods Nature Education Center. The education center is located within the Fullersburg Woods Forest Preserve in Oak Brook. Volunteers lead Nature Discovery Programs and hands-on learning activities for youngsters. They present the world of DuPage flora and fauna through games and puppet shows, which feature nature detectives Frank and Joe. Special events at Fullersburg Woods include Earth Day activities, maple syrup programs and the always-popular Halloween Night Walks.
