Natural Resource Manager Al Roloff will lead a “Summer Evenings on the Prairie” walk and talk through the prairie from 6 to 7:30 p.m. today and Thursday at Afton Forest Preserve, 13600 Crego Road.

Native Illinois prairie plants and prairie history will be discussed along with how to grow these low-maintenance sustainable plants in your own home landscape. Bring a camera to take some photos and binoculars to view the prairie grassland and wetland birds.

Afton Forest Preserve, located 1 1/2 miles south of Perry Road, has picnic areas for those who want to picnic before or after the program. Meet in the middle parking lot.
