March 21, 7:00 pm at the Kuhn Barn, Fermilab Village Everybody welcome. Come and hear about the habitat restoration and wildlife monitoring we have done over the past year and our plans for the future. Featured speaker Mr. Stephen Packard, formerly Director of Science and Stewardship for the Illinois Nature Conservancy (1983-1999) and Founding Director of Audubon Chicago Region (1999-2014).
