The Forest Preserve District invites DuPage County clubs, civic groups and businesses to learn about its forest preserves, education centers and services through a speakers bureau, which runs annually from November through April.

A District naturalist, ranger, heritage interpreter or ecologist will deliver a half-hour program with time for questions and answers. Programs are free to DuPage County residents; out-of-county programs may have fees. 


Willowbrook Wildlife Center — a native wildlife rehabilitation and education facility — offers three additional programs. "Backyard Birds of DuPage County" explores the lives of common species and the world of birding; "Behind the Scenes at Willowbrook Wildlife Center" shares an exclusive look at what goes on at this dynamic center: and "The Urban Coyote" explores the natural history of coyotes and their place in the urban landscape. For information about fees or to schedule these programs, call 630-942-6200.
