Please join us for our annual donor thank you event and take a peek "Behind the Scenery" at Heron Creek Forest Preserve.

Heron Creek opened to the public on Friday, October 10, 2008, and thanks to the dedicated work of Forest Preserve staff and volunteers, it has become a bird watchers paradise as it is home to more than 116 species of birds, including six that are on the Illinois endangered species list.

Forest Preserve staff will be on hand to discuss our current restoration work on how, thanks to a partnership with the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation, we will soon complete 100 acres of habitat restoration.

While our program elements will all take place at shelter B, this is an evening outdoors at a preserve. We encourage you to dress comfortably for an evening in nature. Light bites and refreshments will be provided.

Please RSVP by September 15th. We can't wait to say thank you!
