    Even before the rise of commercial air travel and ballistic missiles, air brought to mind direct connections with distant parts of the world more readily than land and water did. This presentation will explore several interrelated aspects of the influences of birds and bird migrations upon Illinoisans’ geographic and environmental perceptions during the first century of Illinois’s statehood.

    First, rural Illinoisans paid considerable attention to wild birds, both as sources of food and as allies in the war against insect pests before effective synthetic pesticides. Second, a sense that bird populations were declining due to habitat loss and hunting led to increased efforts to figure out bird migrations. Third, those who worked to understand migration did so through vast collaborative webs. Fourth, ornithological studies drew attention to connections to distant places. Finally, understandings of bird migrations were influenced by politics insofar as birders tended to consider North America north of Mexico as a main unit of study (thereby distorting the ranges of many birds) and tended to displace blame for declining bird populations.

    Free and open to the public. Register at 581-5114 or https://sce.eiu.edu/wconnect/CourseStatus.awp?&course=FA18ALBIRDNG

    Come visit a fourth generation family farm and woodland just one mile southwest of EIU campus. Robert and Virginia Lynch purchased Farm 12 of Coles County in 1948. This 40 acre homestead is located on what was then known as Hog Farm Road, our present day University Drive. Hear the history of the farm starting with Robert, who attended EIU from first grade through college, Tom (his son) who attended EIU’s laboratory school through graduate school, and now Mike and Scott Lynch, both EIU graduates as well. The farm was originally a livestock and produce operation which featured a roadside stand that many of Charleston’s most seasoned residents can still remember. Tour the grounds and view the current activities including organically grown tomatoes, pick-your-own sweet corn, a hopyard and pumpkin patch. Learn about the ongoing forest management practices and discuss future plans for the property such as native prairie grass stands and botanical display gardens. As stewards of the land for successive generations, the Lynch Family wishes to create a sustainable, family friendly environment for Charlestonians to enjoy.

    Free and open to the public.  Register by calling 581-5114 or: https://sce.eiu.edu/wconnect/CourseStatus.awp?&course=FA18ALLYNCH
