The Forest Preserve District of Kane County teams up with the St. Charles Park District, and the Geneva Park District to offer a series of classes for ages 16 and above, focusing on a variety of topics in local ecology. The following classes offer in-depth information and learning opportunities. 

Sparrows fly in flocks, deer move in herds, wolves run in packs, and lions gather in prides. Crows, however, congregate in a group called a “murder.” In many cultures, they are associated with death, the afterlife, and the netherworld. Despite their dark reputation, crows are really cool birds! In this program, we will look at the role of the crow in history and culture and then examine their place in ecology. We will also look at population trends since the appearance of West Nile Virus. The discussion will be led by nature programs managers and Corvid enthusiasts Valerie Blaine and Pam Otto.
