I was reminded again what an impact MSLF has made on my child…





Today, I took my son and his friend to Heron Creek Forest Preserve and, to my surprise, instead of running wild like he usually does outside, he taught us how to identify different plants along the trail and took initiative to educate his friend and me about the wild botany. I had no idea you can find wild bergamot right here in the forest preserve. We rubbed dried bergamot heads and enjoyed the wonderful lemony smell and then saw tiny seeds that were left in our palms. He also showed us what switch grass looks like, and milkweed. I was reminded again what an impact MSLF has made on my child and how proud he makes his parents.
