Join us for the grand opening of our newest preserve, a 405-acre bird sanctuary donated to JDCF by former Stockton resident Nancy Hamill Winter. We will be joined by the Hoo Haven Wildlife Rehabilitation and Educational Center with Marshmallow, their Educational American White Pelican. To date, there have been documented sightings of over 100 different bird species at Valley of Eden. Notable Illinois species of conservation concern include the Henslow’s sparrow, bobolink, red-headed woodpecker, and northern harrier, as well as more common species such as a variety of owls, woodpeckers, and grassland birds making Valley of Eden a birding paradise for people of all ages and birding abilities. More details will follow.
