Upcoming Events at the Woodland 

The mission of the Nell’s Woodland Foundation is to provide programs that support stewardship in the areas of Ecology, Wellness, and the Arts. By utilizing our 58-acre oak woodland preserve and two multi-functional education centers we hope to engage the beauty, peace, and serenity of nature to empower well-being and growth. 


Each month the Reddick Library will be hosting a nature-themed Storytime at Nell's Woodland. 

 Enjoy stories, music, and crafts followed by a short hike through the park. Dress for the weather! This event is for children of all ages.


Please register at Reddick Library at 815-434-0509.
