The mission of Fullersburg Woods Nature Education Center is to educate the public about humankind’s influence on DuPage County’s natural ecosystems and the inter-relationships with the environment. It does so by offering programs year-round to the general public, teachers and students, and youth and civic groups.
Scheduled programs for individuals, families and groups focus on natural resources and feature activities from tapping maple trees to identifying spring wildflowers and tracking resident and migrant wildlife. For upcoming programs and events at Fullersburg Woods, visit the Calendar of Events.
During the summer, children can enjoy "Camp FBW." Children ages 4 – 12 learn about nature art, camping and habitats through half-day camps. For session information and registration forms, our Kids Camps page.
