One of the best ways for us to tell the stories of what's going on in the forest preserves is through photos, and we're fortunate to be able to spend a lot of time in the great outdoors so we can do just that.
Whether it's trying to frame a cool sunset shot, grabbing the macro lens to see the eye-popping detail on some insects or hanging back at a safe distance to photograph some bald eagles, there are so many opportunities to capture those moments and share them across our social media channels.
While we often use these photos to educate people about the subject matter, we'll keep it simple for our year in review and let the photos speak for themselves. Hopefully this serves as a bit of an inspiration to get outside more in the coming year and see what you can find, whether it's to get it on camera or just take it all in at the moment.
