Bird Conservation in the Forest Preserves of Cook County
Bird monitors, researchers and stewards discuss what it takes to maintain or restore key bird habitat types. They will share a new publication that uses monitoring data to identify the most important preserves for birds in the Cook County Forest Preserves and shares best practices for habitat restoration. Two smaller preserves with many challenges and attempted solutions—Somme Prairie Grove and Somme Prairie Nature Preserve—serve as examples. Bring your questions!
