at Blackberry Farm

Bring the entire family out to Blackberry Farm to celebrate the fall season. Discover the ways of the pioneer and enjoy musical entertainment and seasonal crafts. Activities are included with daily admission. (JZ)

Zombie Invasion 5K It’s one thing to run a 5K, but it’s a whole different race when the course is infested by a horde of zombies. The invasion is spreading! Can you survive? This 2nd annual event will take racers through a sea of obstacles on a zombie infested course. Run, climb, crawl, pull and slide – whatever it takes – to escape the living dead. Wearing a flag football-like belt, racers will make strategic choices to find the quickest route to survival. Afterward, the lucky survivors – those who finish with one or more flags intact – and freshly resurrected zombies – those who finish without flags – will enjoy entertainment, food and beverages around a bonfire. (AK) Three different levels of participation: Racers ($55): Includes event T-shirt, chip timing, race medal, access to Safe Zone and invitation to Zombieland Party in the Park. Zombies ($20): Includes Zombie T-shirt, full zombie transformation and invitation to the Zombieland Party in the Park. Spectators ($5): Includes access to the Zombieland Party in the Park, people (and zombie) watching opportunities galore.

Tai Chi for Health

Taiji Quan

Tai Chi is a unique way of exercising through graceful, slow, smooth and flowing movements. The routine is designed to free the mind and body of stress. Classes can be taken either one or two days a week. (MO)

Sometimes called ‘moving meditation,’ Taiji Quan is a slow, gentle exercise that encourages balance, good circulation and stress reduction. It is also a form of self-defense based on sensitivity, timing and leverage rather than strength. Those who sign up for one night per week may attend either Monday or Wednesday as schedule permits. Head instructor David Carr has been practicing Taiji Quan for more than 20 years. No class Nov. 25 and 27. (MO)

What is QuickStart Tennis? QuickStart Tennis is a new format to help children 10 and under learn and play the game of tennis. Balls are lower in compression so they bounce lower and don’t move as fast – making them easier to hit. This allows kids time to get to the ball and helps them develop optimal swing patterns. Rackets are sized for small hands, and the courts are smaller and easier to cover. Full-sized courts can be reconfigured to accomodate up to six 36foot courts so kids can spend their time playing instead of waiting in line.

Note All tennis participants are subject to pro approval and can be transferred based on ability level.

Green Tip!

Thanks!

Switch to save water and money!

We appreciate all of our volunteers! Thank you to our many volunteers who have given of their time and talent during the summer. We appreciate all the people who volunteered as coaches, program volunteers, at special events and at all other activities that time and talent was given.

Save every time you flush by installing low-flow toilets. They use only 1.6 gallons per flush, compared to 3.5 gallons per flush for pre-1994 models. Save water at your faucets by installing aerators. This could cut your annual water consumption by 50%.

Aquatics Swim Lessons: Parent+Preschool – Indoors

Swim Lessons AquaTots – Indoors AquaTots is designed to provide a fun and nurturing environment for young children to be safely introduced to the water with an accompanying adult. An adult and child can play, float and bond together through singing songs and playing games. This is not a safety class or swim instruction but a chance for children to become acclimated to the water. Children must wear a swim diaper under their bathing suit.

Children develop a foundation for future swimming skills as instructors help the adult work with the child on basic techniques such as submerging the face and head in the water, gliding on front and back, kicking and beginning freestyle and backstroke motions. This is a great class to introduce children to the water, work on social skills and calm any separation anxiety or fear toward the water. Children who are not potty-trained must wear a swim diaper under their bathing suit. (JC) Age

Swim Lessons: Preschool – Indoors Children who have already had an introduction to the water and / or are comfortable being in a group environment without a parent present can work on basic swimming skills, such as submerging the face and head, freestyle and backstroke motions and gliding on the stomach and back, while learning the rules of the pool and how to keep themselves safe. To complete this level and move on to the beginner class before turning 5, children must be able to float independently on their fronts and backs, submerge their faces completely, swim freestyle with little or no help and be free of separation anxiety.

Gymnastics for 2s & 3s with Parents

Little Flyaways Little Flyaways is an introductory gymnastics program at Eola and Prisco consisting of four levels for ages 18 months to 5 years. The Little Flyaways gymnastics classes focus on developing motor skills, coordination, strength, flexibility body awareness and basic gymnastics skills. In the parent/child classes, children must be accompanied by a participating adult. Please make alternate arrangements for siblings. At Eola, the child care area is available in the morning during the weekdays. Parent Watch is on the third week and last week of each session. Parents are asked to stay during the duration of the class in case the child needs to use the restroom. All of the Little Flyaways gymnastics classes progress into the recreational and/or competitive programs. Call Kristin Balderas at 630-851-8990.

Parents assist their young gymnasts as everyone learns basic gymnastics skills on the vault, bars, beam and floor. Age-appropriate activities help develop flexibility, strength, coordination and body awareness. Safety tips and spotting techniques are stressed. This class is essential for helping children develop their school readiness skills. For example, instructors will teach students how to waddle like a penguin during animal week, while also working on taking turns and foot-eye coordination. All children must be accompanied by a participating adult. Siblings may only attend if they also are enrolled in the class. No class Nov. 25 to Dec. 1. (KB) Age

Fun for Families Build a Fairy House!

White Tail Trail

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. Participants are encouraged to bring in items to decorate the fairy house, but should remember that fairies are small, and so are their homes! The activity will also include a short hike to collect bark, leaves and whatever else can be found to be used as building materials. (MG)

It’s deer season, and Red Oak is offering kids the opportunity to learn about and explore artifacts of white-tail deer (fur, bones, legs, antlers, skulls and more). Participants will be amazed by the crazy sounds made to communicate and will create some edible deer scat to take home. (MG)

No Child Left Inside Today’s children have become disconnected from nature; some call it “nature deficit disorder.” Instead of spending hours outside riding bikes and climbing trees, they’re playing video games, surfing the web, watching TV and texting. No Child Left Inside is an initiative by the Fox Valley Park District that encourages children to unplug from technology and get outside to enjoy all the recreational resources and outdoor activities available to them – the fresh air and fun of the great outdoors!

Please sign up in person or by mail and use the regular program registration form (available online or in the community centers).

The recital costume fee must be paid in full at the time of measurement. Dancers must be measured by Nov. 29 in order to participate in the Spring Recital.

We appreciate all of our volunteers! Thank you to all of our many volunteers who have given of their time and talent during the summer. We appreciate all the people who volunteered as coaches, program volunteers, at special events and at all other activities that time and talent was given.

Volunteer Spotlight For 36 years – from high school to retirement – Debbie Augsburg devoted herself to people and plants. They were part of her life every day. A horticulturalist for the Fox Valley Park District, Debbie took great delight in creating artwork gardens of beautiful flowers throughout the community for people to enjoy. It was hard to walk away when she… decided to walk away. So she didn’t. Although Augsburg retired from the Park District in 2009, she has since continued to contribute as an active volunteer. She’s every bit as dedicated, without the daily job demands. “I always enjoyed what I did for a living, and especially the people I met over all those years,” said Debbie. “So volunteering was a way for me to stay involved with what I love to do.” Before retirement, Debbie created the “Gardeners on the Go” program that travels to regional greenhouses, nurseries and gardening-related destinations. She’s continued to grow the highly popular program, lending her assistance and expertise on each monthly trip. Debbie isn’t just a seasonal volunteer, however. She can be found throughout the year helping out with Friendly Center Club luncheons and trips, working with the greenhouse crews throughout the District and creating holiday decorations at Blackberry Farm for the annual Polar Express. Her career at the Park District began as a high school student, when she participated in a joint work program between the East and West Aurora school districts. In 1973, she was hired full-time to begin a horticulture program which, today, plants more than 60,000 annual flowers among 164 parks. “The Park District was a great place to work, and volunteering allows me to give back to the people and the communities that gave me so much,” said Debbie. “I truly enjoy helping out and sharing time with others.”

Nestled on the east bank of the Fox River, the Red Oak Nature Center is surrounded by 40 acres of lush forest and wildlife habitat – an ideal setting for visitors to learn about the great outdoors through direct interaction with nature. Six hiking trails and the nationally renowned Fox River Trail offer avenues of exploration via hiking and biking, with interpretive signs along the way that explain the ways of nature. An indoor discovery center further enhances the educational experience, featuring environmental exhibits and “hands-on” participation designed to create a better understanding of the natural world.

NEW! Wildlife Room

Step into the world of wild animals. The wildlife room is home to many animals that live and thrive in the Fox River area. The newly remodeled room features a 500 gallon turtle and fish habitat, along with new habitats for frogs, salamanders and snakes.

The bee hive offers visitors a view of both sides of the hive through a glass partition. Search for the queen and watch the worker bees come and go as they carry pollen and nectar to the hive.

Discovery Room

Take a relaxing break while enjoying a beautiful view of the woods and wildlife. The Discovery Room is home to a vast array of nature books, puzzles and games that help lend a better understanding to the wonders of nature. This room is also the home of Red Oak’s Nature Play Preschool!

Devil’s Cave

Follow the Fox River Trail from the Nature Center down to Devil’s Cave at the river’s edge. It’s the only cave in the Aurora area. Inside the Nature Center, earn the legend of how this unique geological formation was given its haunting name.

Observation Deck

Step out, take a deep breath and enjoy truly spectacular views. Located directly behind the Nature Center, the Observation Deck sits over the Fox River and is an ideal vantage point for viewing river wildlife, migratory birds and the wooded shorelines and islands.

New at Red Oak!

Picnic Shelter

Enjoy a break at the spacious picnic shelter area (not reservable). A limestone fireplace and plenty of tables make it the ideal setting for an outdoor lunch.

Trails

Red Oak features six hiking trails that run throughout the woods that border the Fox River. Each of the six trails has a wood-chip base for hiking stability and comfort. Dogs are welcome on the paved trails only.

Exciting changes are happening inside Red Oak Nature Center. Visit the newly remodeled lobby and Wildlife Room. The new exhibits include an indoor “forest,” turtle pond, updated live animal displays and more! Red Oak Nature Center • 127


Skate Parks •  Hupp Skate Park is located at the corner of Illinois Avenue and Orchard Road in Aurora. Park hours are dawn to dusk year-round. Skaters: Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Bikers: Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday.

Outdoor Facilities The Fox Valley Park District maintains 164 parks and 45 miles of interconnected trails amid 2,500 acres of parkland and 22 miles of Fox River shoreline. Park service coverage is spaced throughout Aurora, North Aurora and Montgomery, providing virtually every resident and neighborhood with convenient, nearby access to parks and open space.

Dog Parks The park district has two dog parks: •  Lincoln Park Dog Park, at the south end of Lincoln Park at South Harrison Avenue just north of Prairie Street and east of Elmwood Drive •  Gregory Island Dog Park, between Routes 25 and 31 on Indian Trail Dogs must be registered with the park district. Dog tag registration may be done by mail, email, online or fax by filling out the registration available online at foxvalleyparkdistrict.org or in person at the park district police office, 1460 S.

Fishing Lakes and Boat Ramps The district has a variety of fishing lakes for some relaxing fun. To ensure longterm, 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. 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.
