JDCF was on location at the Valley of Eden Bird Sanctuary for a Facebook Live event with a birding expert who shared great information on how to get started birding. This is a great activity for the entire family and can be done anywhere, even in your own backyard! Should you want to get away from the house, Valley of Eden is located at 5559 E Rush Creek Road, Stockton, IL and is open daily to the public for free hiking and birding along six miles of mowed trails. Hours are dawn to dusk.
Be sure to join us next Thursday, June 11th, at 10:00 AM for another Facebook Live event. We will onsite at the Witkowsky State Wildlife Area in Hanover, IL to learn about new hiking trails that have been installed there by a volunteer friends group.
