Today’s meeting was held at Glacial Park, owned by McHenry County Conservation District. The park, which is a remnant of glacial activity, contains gravel kames, kettles, restored prairies, oak savannas and wetlands. The location for the meeting was the Lost Valley Visitor Center. I took quite a few pictures of the beautiful surroundings before the meeting and during our lunch break.
After the meeting, one of my coworkers spotted some baby squirrels peeking out of a hole in a tree. I took a photo but my lens didn’t zoom quite far enough. I got as close as I could and then cropped the photo later at home so you could see the face a little better. Pretty cute, huh?!! We think there were 3 babies inside. There was a 2nd hole further up on the right tree branch and the momma squirrel was peeking out of it.
