What a Catch!

Tired of sitting or lying around at home? Pack up your picnic bags, a lot of water and some snacks and head out to any of the Cook County Forest Preserve for a lot of fun. Today, in particular, we “caught” a big one. A FREE swimming lesson at the River Trail Nature Center. We had marine biologists talk about the different types of fish that thrive in the numerous cook county rivers and lakes.


Here are some of the questions that were answered during this activity.

  1. What are the types of fish found in the Cook County lakes and rivers?
  2. Where can you fish in Cook County?
  3. Can you keep the fish that you catch?
