A message from our Executive Director… Dear Residents,

Our Mission

The final days of summer are worth celebrating – July was National Recreation and Park Association month, and our agency was fully engaged in offering the types of programs, events and access to recreation that makes us proud to serve you on a daily basis.

Enrich our community with fun, diverse and safe park and recreation experiences through environmentally and fiscally responsible actions.

Board of Trustees Chuck Anderson President Holly Scholz Vice-President Alex Alexandrou Commissioner Jerry Butler Commissioner Mary Anne Cummings Commissioner Matt Hicks Commissioner Cynthia Penne Commissioner

Executive Team Jim Pilmer Executive Director Diana Erickson, CPRP Sr. Director of Finance & Administration Jaime Ijams, CPRP Director of Recreation

We continue to strive toward excellence aligned with the three pillars of recreation as defined by the NRPA; Health & Wellness, Conservation, & Social Equity. Our fitness centers have seen a resurgence of programs that are innovative and attractive to members looking for unique experiences. We continue to look at trail and park improvements for those who pursue Health & Wellness in our beautiful outdoor venues. Our conservation efforts are ongoing and recognizable. As stewards of your publicly owned 168 parks, 2,500 acres of parkland, open space, and natural areas, it’s imperative that we work toward a sustainable future. Fox Valley Park District recently became the first public agency in Kane County to adopt the new Conservation@Work program. Lippold Park, Stuart Sports Complex, New Haven Park and the Cole Administration Center were all recognized for their excellent models of conservation. Sustainable landscape practices cost less to maintain and aid stormwater management. Fox Valley Park District’s commitment to social equity is taking root. Recent efforts include summer camp inclusion for children of families in domestic abuse agencies, a transitional program that offers workday experiences for adults with disabilities, partnership with VNA to help drive early physicals and immunizations, and garden plots that are dedicated toward a local food bank. Consistent community outreach with our municipal and private partners ensures that we are at the table and leading the way toward future social equity opportunities.

John Kramer Director of Operations

Fall is sure to be another fun-filled season. We look forward to the grand opening of Blackhawk Park, the natural wonder of Blackberry Farm and Red Oak, and the joy of happy faces back in our preschools.

Build a Fairy House  Legend has it that if someone builds a fairy home and leaves it in the garden, it might attract a fairy! Even for those who don’t believe in fairies, this is a great creative project and a way to test the myth.

KIDS FITNESS INITIATIVES  FIT FOR KIDS

The Fox Valley Park District is taking a leading role in the battle against childhood obesity. Teaching children the importance of exercise and nutrition provides them a solid foundation for a healthy future. In partnership with local agencies, the District helped create the “Making Kane County Fit for Kids” campaign. A major component of this campaign is the “Fit Kids 2020 Plan,” which provides guidelines, strategies and action steps to put children on a path toward healthy living. The plan includes initiatives and ideas that communities and residents can apply to a common goal. By working together, we create an environment where children make smart lifestyle choices that are beneficial toward their long-term health and well-being. For more information, visit makingkanefitforkids.org.

WORKING IT OUT TOGETHER

This program encourages kids and parents to work out together and develop a healthy lifestyle. Equipment will be set aside to allow children to work out with their parents. All children under the age of 14 are required to complete an equipment orientation prior to utilizing the fitness floor. Call the Vaughan or Eola Fitness Desk to set up an appointment. (BM) (JN)

Tennis Lessons: Tournament Training 2  A continuation of TT1, this class is geared towards players with moderate tennis experience who are starting to play competitively or have a desire to play competitively. Players in this level have mastered the “short-court rally,” they can hit topspin on both groundstrokes; they have developed a ritual and a reliable second serve. Developing consistency is the focus as technique improves. Time is spent each class in developing athleticism and improving conditioning. (BSV) Location

Tennis Lessons: Youth Beginner  This program is for players that have had little to no tennis instruction. It will cover the technique basics for serves, forehands, backhands and volleys. Scoring and play will be introduced. Players need to bring their own racquet. Racquets are sold at the Vaughan Tennis Center Pro Shop. (BSV)

Preschool Programs

Where LEARNING begins

Our preschool programs are guided by the philosophy of learning through play. Play forms the foundation of cognitive, social, physical and emotional skills that are the building blocks for success in school, paving the way for life-long learning. Our STEAM based curriculum is rich in science, mathematics, and art activities while following the Illinois Early Learning Standards. There are four different preschool program offerings based on age. Each program focuses on developmentally appropriate practices that nurture each stage of a child’s preschool career. For more information please call, Deedee Buscher (630) 851-8990. The Creative Play Preschool program is housed at Eola and Prisco Community Centers. This is a traditional preschool program that embraces the STEAM curriculum while utilizing the benefits of being at a community center. Our classrooms and creative materials encourage play to promote your child’s means of expression, creativity and problem-solving skills. Playing with others and participating in small and large group activities will help your child achieve healthy emotional development. Children will experience inside and outside classroom time, as well has utilizing the gym for gross motor.

The Nature Play Preschool program curriculum is based on traditional kindergarten readiness skills and developmentally appropriate practices with an emphasis on environmental education. Students learn to embrace natural surroundings and investigate the world around them. Recycling and conservation education is an integral part of this curriculum. Students will go outside every day, all year round unless the weather is inclement or the temperature drops below 28 degrees.

Volunteer Spotlight ANNA BAKKER

Like most Moms, Anna Bakker is extremely busy, constantly on the go with her two young children. But Anna’s hectic schedule doesn’t prevent her from making time for two of her other greatest loves: volunteering and being outdoors. The forests and prairies and rivers always beckon, and Anna is there to answer nature’s call. Whenever time permits, you’ll find her in the stately woods surrounding Red Oak Nature Center, where she’s been a valuable volunteer in so many ways. Since early spring, Anna has led efforts to cut and clear mass amounts of invasive shrubs – honeysuckle and buckthorn, in particular – along the popular Dolomite Trail. With an undergraduate degree in Fisheries/Wildlife and a Masters in Environmental Education, it’s not just the hours she puts in, but the vast knowledge she brings. “The impact Anna made was immediate; we soon saw wildflowers growing again and she opened up spectacular views of the Fox River,” said Red Oak manager Margaret Gazdacka. “Her volunteer contributions have made a wonderful difference.” Removing invasives and trimming overgrown trees to clear the forest’s understory helps native plants to flourish while allowing more sunlight to penetrate through the woods, thus advancing greater growth and diversity. “It’s amazing how much beneficial growth results when you remove the invasives,” said Anna. “Some people ask “Why are you cutting all that out?” and then it becomes a teachable moment.” To that end, Anna uses her teaching experience and education degree to her advantage. “People get inspired when they understand how this type of work makes a difference,” Anna said. “Sometimes they’ll roll up their sleeves right then and there and start helping out!” Anna has been heavily involved in outdoor volunteer work for the past 15 years since her days as a student at Michigan State and plans to keep up the same pace. “I want to volunteer as long as I can,” Anna said. “I miss doing this as a job, so this is my way to stay connected. I’ll always love the outdoors.” It appears the feeling is mutual. foxvalleyparkdistrict.org • 101

Outdoor Facilities FISHING LAKES AND BOAT RAMPS

TRAILS

The district has a variety of fishing lakes for some relaxing fun. To ensure long-term, quality fishing at its lakes, the Fox Valley Park District has a cooperative management agreement with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources that is intended to develop healthy eco-systems and improve fishing quality. Rather than stock and re-stock regularly, the lakes management program creates a fishery that is self-sustaining. The payoffs for fishermen are greater catch rates and bigger fish.

The park district features more than 48 miles of premier regional trails (trailheads with parking listed below). Trail maps are located on the “Park and Trails” tab at foxvalleyparkdistrict.org.

Printable contour maps of select lakes are available online at foxvalleyparkdistrict.org. The maps feature lake depths and shoreline features, along with specific information on fish species, average numbers and sizes, and creel limits. Fishing lakes with off-street parking include: •  Foxcroft Lake: Elder and Birch in Aurora •  Jericho Lake: Jericho Road in Aurora •  Lake Gregory/Blackberry Farm (free with paid admission and valid fishing license weekdays only May 1 to Aug. 31): 100 S. Barnes Road, Aurora •  Fall Lake: McCoy and Frontenac in Aurora •  Waubonsie Lake: Montgomery and Kautz in Aurora •  Wheatland Lake: Barrington and Spinnaker in Aurora Boat ramp locations: • Veterans Island •  South River Street Park
