Birding at Wards Grove in Stockton, IL

May 12 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

According to the Illinois Nature Preserves Commission, “Its large size, unbroken canopy, mature understory, and position with respect to other regional forested areas, make Wards Grove a very valuable site for area-sensitive bird species. Ovenbird, Acadian flycatcher, American redstart, scarlet tanager, veery, pileated woodpecker, and black and white warbler inhabit the forest.”

Join JDCF Director of Special Projects and birding expert, Tom Clay, for a spring birding adventure at Wards Grove.  Free to attend and RSVPs not needed.  Be sure to bring your binoculars!
