Birders at Emiquon on Annual
"Birding the Illinois" Field Trip
On March 4, Peoria Audubon Society, in a partnership with
the Peoria Park District, will be hosting our annual
"Birding the Illinois River" field trip that will include a
stopover at Emiquon. We will be stopping at
birding hotspots along the Illinois River in search of
waterfowl. Each trip is always unique as the birds are
always moving around.
Plus, this time
because of a special arrangement, the field trip will be
special in that we will have access to an area of Emiquon
that is behind the scenes and closed to the public.
Snacks, meals and transportation in a Peoria Park District
van are included.
