The University of Illinois Extension wants you to know your trees. They are offering a winter tree identification webinar series. Christopher Evans is a forestry and research specialist with the Extension and he is teaching the class. He said the classes are free and "totally open to anyone."

"As long as they're interested in learning about trees and willing to listen to me talk for an hour, they are welcome to take it," he said. "There is no age limit."

The University of Illinois Extension is offering a Holiday Mash-Up Mini-Camp for kids aged eight through 12. It’s through 4-H, but Carroll County 4-H Program Coordinator Molly Sedig said you don’t have to be in 4-H to participate in the virtual camp.

"We are all going to sign into Zoom," she said, "and have fun with some STEAM activities."

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.
