Dinosaurs in Deerfield? Endangered turtles? 300 year old trees? Yes! 

On this episode of the Deerfield Public Library Podcast, we learn about the plant and animal life around us with with Nan Buckardt, Director of Education at the Lake County Forest Preserves. Hear how, in Nan’s words, “the land shapes the people and the people shape the land.” You’ll also learn what makes each of the preserves around Deerfield unique: Ryerson Woods, Prairie Wolf Forest Preserve and Dog Park, and Berkeley Prairie Forest Preserve.

Find out more more about the the Lake County Forest Preserves, the Dunn Museum in Libertyville or the Hike Lake County program, on their website LCFPD.org.
