On Saturday and Sunday, February 11 & 12, from 4-8 p.m., families will also be greeted by glittering lights, wildlife treat trees, ice sculpting, snowshoeing, hot chocolate, a campfire and hayrides through the woodland.
Admission without dinner is $6. Admission including a chili dinner is $8-13. Emily Oaks Nature Center is located at 4650 Brummel St., in Skokie.
