Distribution of Flying Squirrels in DuPage County
Brian Kraskiewicz, DuPage County Forest Preserves
The Southern Flying Squirrel (Glaucomys volans) is an arboreal, nocturnal rodent that has been rarely studied in urban and suburban landscapes.  Thought to be common throughout Illinois, southern flying squirrels are rarely observed due to their activity patterns, elusiveness, and small size.  Using trail cameras we investigated the distribution within DuPage County.

White-tailed Deer in the Chicago Area
Mike Neri, Forest Preserves of Cook County 
Deer are found all over the region.  We will look at the history of the herd and what research can tell us about management going forward.
