Join other photographers for a special opportunity to view and photograph the herons, egrets and cormorants at Lake Renwick Heron Rookery Nature Preserve.
This is the beginning of the nesting season with hundreds of nesting birds in the preserve. Share insights into this exciting hobby with other like-minded shutterbugs.
A naturalist and camera buff will lead the group. The program includes hiking less than 1 mile on preserve trails over uneven terrain. The group will meet by the visitor center at the Renwick Road entrance.
Please do not bring dogs or bicycles. They are not permitted in the nature preserve.
Registration is required by calling 815.886.1467 by Thursday, April 19.
Bring your binoculars and favorite bird field guide.
The hike will be between 1 and 1.5 miles over uneven terrain. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should submit a request online no later than 48 hours before the program.
