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.

The best way to learn about birds is to see and hear them! Learn from a naturalist and other like-minded birders as you take a bird hike through oak-hickory forest near the Des Plaines River.

The program begins with a short presentation about one particular bird or bird topic. Meet at Frederick’s Grove Shelter, and please dress for the weather.
