UPCOMING EVENTS

All events are open to the public:


BIOBLITZ RESCHEDULED: July 9 - 10, 2 pm Friday through 2 pm Saturday: Nahant and the BiCAN group are planning a BioBlitz beginning at the Large Shelter 836 State Avenue, Hampton, IL and surveying Illiniwek Forest Preserve, Elton Fawks and Fisherman's Corner. Experts will be surveying and cataloging species from various areas of the preserve. The goal is to collect basic taxonomic data and to highlight the value of local habitats. The hallmark of a BioBlitz is that members of the public witness and participate in the study of local biodiversity, learning more about the natural world in their own community. The public will be welcome to join in various hikes and family programs. Audubon members may volunteer to help survey birds.
