Wednesday, May 30 Colored Sands Forest Preserve
Join Sand Bluff Bird Observatory's naturalists Lee and Lynda Johnson for a wildflower walkabout tour of the beautiful sand country at Colored Sands Bluff Nature Preserve. The vegetation is unique to dry sand prairies, which once dominated the area but now are very rare. This easy level walk will be a great hike for beginners as well as the experienced. Bring a wildflower book, binoculars, and bug spray. Meet at the Banding Station parking lot at the end of Haas Road near Durand.
