The Big Trees of Kane County - Illinois may be known as the Prairie State, but we’ve got some awesome trees as well! You can help discover and document the giants as part of The Kane County Big Tree Registry. This program encourages citizens to appreciate, record and report the largest native trees in Kane County. Learn how to get involved during this workshop led by naturalists Valerie Blaine and Josh Libman. We’ll begin with classroom instruction covering tree identification, the history of the Big Tree program, and citizen involvement. Then, we’ll head outdoors to practice measuring trees.
