Emiquon is one of the largest floodplain restoration projects in the Midwest. It is the premiere demonstration site for The Nature Conservancy’s work on the Illinois River and within the Upper Mississippi River system and ultimately will help guide large floodplain river restoration efforts around the world. The preserve has become a hotspot for migrating shorebirds and waterfowl.
We will travel along the new paddlecraft trail to observe wildlife on the historic Thompson/Flagg lakes. Our guide and storyteller will be Doug Blodgett, Director of River Conservation for The Nature Conservancy.
Cost of trip includes lunch, snacks, water and canoe.
