FOX Club for Families

The FOX (Families Outside Exploring) Club encourages families to get out and investigate our natural world found within McHenry County Conservation District sites. Families spend time participating in freestyle nature explorations and learning about the county’s natural history while enjoying time together, fresh air, and exercise in the out-of-doors.

The benefits of being FOX members are many including fresh air, exercise, quality family time, and a chance to learn more about nature.  In addition, a child’s positive interaction with the environment may lead to a life-long interest in enjoying and conserving nature. 

Membership is FREE! Families receive a bi-monthly newsletter, the opportunity to attend four great outings/exclusive club gatherings each year, and an invitation to join the FOX Club Facebook group. Families will also receive a backpack including tools to explore outside, Conservation Area maps and informational brochures.
