School Programs in the Preserves

Visit a DuPage forest preserve with your students where they will learn about natural sciences and DuPage County's cultural history. These programs are designed to meet national learning standards, including Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards.

Self-guided discoveries requires a three-week advance reservation and do not have a fee. Letting us know about your self-guided visit is important for our planning and allows us to reach out to you in case of any preserve closures.

Picnic shelter reservations are free for registered school groups.

The Forest Preserve District is committed to making its programs available to all groups. Please mention any accessibility needs or concerns when you reserve your program.
