Pilcher Park Nature Center is located in Pilcher Park in Joliet. There are entrances to the park off of both Gouger Road and Cass Road. Starting from the Nature Center's parking lot find the paved path leading back to the road. Starting from the yellow post on the north end of this path take 15 paces and look right. There should be a configuration of logs and piece of limestone. Look under the logs to find the letterbox.

This letterbox was placed by the participants of the nature center's "Trailbusters" camp. Along with letterboxing and geocaching the kids learned map reading skills and compass skills. Inside the box is a bug stamp, log book, inkpad and directions for a short walking tour of some of the sites right around the nature center. If you take the tour, please return the directions to the letterbox or to the receptionist inside the nature center. Pilcher Park Nature Center is open most days from 9:00 - 3:00 except in June, July and August when we are open 9:00 - 4:30.
