Campfire Talk on night
The Natural Land Institute will host a campfire talk at the 721-acre Nygren Wetland Preserve from 8 to 10 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 23. Visitors will learn to identify sounds that mark the shift from day to night during a twilight walk, followed by viewing the night sky with binoculars.
The Nygren Wetland Preserve is located at 3190 W. Rockton Rd., about a mile west of Rockton. The campfire talk is free to Natural Land Institute members and volunteers. A $5 donation per person is requested from non-members. Gregg Nybo will present the program.
The Nygren Wetland Preserve is being restored with native vegetation by the Natural Land Institute to provide habitat for cranes, river otters and other wildlife. Established in 1958, the Natural Land Institute is a private, member-supported, not-for-profit conservation organization that protects land, water and wildlife in northern Illinois.
