Join us on Tuesday, October 26th for "Foot Stomping and Booming, Illinois Prairie Chickens," a talk by IDNR's Robert Gillespie!
The following is an opportunity shared with us by the EIU Academy of Lifelong Learning. Check it out:
Members of the East Central Illinois Bluebird Society will meet us at Mill Creek Lake at the Lion's Shelter (near boat ramps) for an educational talk on Eastern Bluebirds. Donna Smith, who monitors the bluebird trail at Mill Creek, will give a presentation on the what, when, where and why, with something 'extra' on bluebirds. They are native to North America and are highly valued for their insect control skills. Enjoy a day in the park and you may leave wanting to start your own bluebird trail. Kerry Allen will provide information on the Bluebird Society and resources for additional information will also be shared. Bring a sack lunch and drink to enjoy after the session if you like. (Parking available close to Lion's Club Shelter: after entering the park and passing the gatehouse, take the first left, then stay to the right. The shelter is on the right-hand side.)
