The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
One thing is clear: Everyone loves wildlife shots
If you like nature photos and you're not following us on Instagram, then you're really missing out.
It was an incredible year on that social media platform, where we shared approximately 600 photos and videos with a number of goals in mind:
While many of the wonderful shots you'll see on a daily basis in our Instagram feed are taken by District staff, a good share of them come from the public, whether it's via our Preserve the Moment Photo Contest or our Will County Wildlife Facebook Group.
Simply put, it's a total team effort throughout the county.
To the members of the public who are regular contributors, we'd like to say thank you. Having extra eyes, ears and, of course, cameras out in the preserves help us tremendously in showing off nature's beauty.
Here's a look back at some of the highlights featuring our most-liked photos of 2018:
