Virtual Meeting with Zoom

Since we have not had a meeting with our members since March 2020, we thought this would be a good opportunity to see what our members have been doing! For this virtual members’ night, we will offer a chance for you to share any birding, plant or other nature adventures, stories, photographs, short videos, etc., showcasing any experiences that members have done since the beginning of the year.
Open to the public!

Field TripsField Trip: Migrating Waterfowl on the Mississippi River

Tuesday, November 17, 2020
1 – 4 p.m.
Coordinator: Mary Blackmore, 815-938-3204

Registration is required by calling Mary Blackmore at 815-938-3204.
Due to the repairs closure of Spring Lake, we’ll meet at the overlook opposite the FWS Ingersoll Wetlands Center on River Rd. about a half-mile off of HWY 84 south of Savanna. There should be migrating ducks passing through from their northern nesting grounds, and hopefully some Tundra Swans. We’ll make several stops along the river for additional viewings, ending the trip at Lock and Dam 13 just south of Thomson.

COVID-19 Precautions: There will not be carpooling. Equipment, including spotting scopes, will not be shared. Bring your face covering in case there are times when you will be unable to social-distance.
