Warbler Ridge Conservation Area (Saturday 7:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.)


Visit with Grand Prairie Friends Land Trust guides and staff as we explore portions of the 1,200-acre Warbler Ridge Conservation Area near Charleston. Nestled on the Embarras River at the southmost reach of the Wisconsin glacier, this Coles County gem offers ridges and ravines alongside flat floodplain forest and pollinator habitats. Trip Leader Tyler Funk will help us search for migrating and resident songbirds in the morning. Larger avian residents include the pileated woodpecker, bald eagle and harriers. After lunch we will switch focus to learn about an exciting bat habitat restoration project underway at Warbler Ridge. Combined morning and afternoon walking distance will be approximately 3 miles both flat grassland habitat and forest dirt trails with moderate terrain. Field trip includes round-trip transportation by van. Please purchase lunch with registration.  We will have coolers onboard for those who chose to brown bag. (Maximum 20) Cost: $30
