During an Inquiry Adventures field trip, small groups of 5 to 8 youth investigate various aspects of Cook County's natural areas under the guidance of Extension and Forest Preserve staff and trained Master Naturalist or Master Gardener volunteers. The youth choose their own topic to investigate based on their observations of the nature site. Popular topics include tree surveys, insect counts, pond dips, studies of decaying logs, and plant surveys - but the possibilities are ENDLESS.
