Intrepid travelers can take a trip through Will County by August 31 and get their passport stamped at five Forest Preserve District of Will County nature centers as part of the Passport to the Preserves program. It encourages people to visit the Four Rivers Environmental Education Center, in Channahon; Hidden Oaks Nature Center, in Bolingbrook; Isle a la Cache Museum, in Romeoville; Monee Reservoir Visitor Center, in Monee Township; and Plum Creek Nature Center, in Crete Township, near Beecher.

Passports are “stamped” with a unique nature rubbing at each location. Get all five stamps to receive a special Take It Outside pin to adorn a hat, backpack or jacket. Just bring a completed passport to the front desk of any Forest Preserve visitor center to redeem the reward. Preserves are open from 8 a.m. to sunset. Visitor center hours vary, so check online before heading out.
