In 1957 May Theilgaard Watts, naturalist at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, wrote the enchanting book "Reading the Landscape." She wrote “there is good reading on the land...The records are written in the forests, in fencerows, in gardens, in tree rings.” All ages are welcome to join in on this fall hike to read the landscape of Thorn Creek Woods but registration is required by Nov. 12 by calling.
