Biodiversity in the Green River Lowlands (Lee County)

Register Here ↓

Located approximately two miles southeast of Amboy Marsh and Gremel Nature Preserves are Conservation Opportunity Areas within the Illinois Wildlife Action Plan’s Green River Lowlands. Topographically diverse, these preserves include sparsely vegetated sand dunes, black oak savannah sand forests, seasonal wetlands, sedge meadows and dry sand prairies. These unique ecosystems provide refuge for state listed plants and animals. Amboy Marsh was dedicated as an Illinois Nature Preserve in 2015 with Gremel being dedicated in 2017.

As we tour the properties, our expert guides will help us observe and identify a diversity of plants and animals that we will find. We will also learn about successful restoration efforts and future restoration plans.

Our journey will combine vehicle transport, some hiking (mowed paths) and a picnic lunch.
