Chickens on the Prairie; Legends, Lessons and Enlightening Updates (Saturday 2:15 – 3:15 p.m.)
The Illinois Audubon Society first sounded the alarm with concerns of the decline in prairie-chicken populations in 1931. Nearly 91 years later, their future in Illinois now rests in the capable hands of Bob Gillespie, Site Manager at Prairie Ridge State Natural Area. Bob will cover the history and latest news for our boomers on the prairie. Program will be held in the Allerton Mansion Library.
