    Less than .1% of Indiana’s and Illinois’ original prairies and wetlands remain today. We’ll learn about conservation efforts at The Nature Conservancy’s Kankakee Sands which has preserved or restored over 7,300 acres of natural area and connects 22,000 acres of habitat in Northwest Indiana. Kankakee Sands is home to over 100 rare, threatened or endangered species and supports the endangered Regal Fritillary butterfly, red-headed woodpeckers, plains pocket gophers, short-eared owls, ornate box turtles, glass lizards and over 700 native plant species, filling the land with song and sights to behold. In 2016 23 Bison were brought to the site as part of the restoration process. The herd has grown to over 50, and amazing changes are taking place on the prairie.

    Enjoy a photographic journey on Wednesday (followed by an on-site guided walk on Thursday), of Coles County’s newest natural area. Join photographer and GPF Board Member, Fred Delcomyn, as he uses his photography to highlight the unique land forms, plants and animals of Warbler Ridge. Warbler Ridge Conservation area, located between Lake Charleston and Fox Ridge State Park, began when a private non-profit conservation organization, Grand Prairie Friends (GPF), purchased a 141-acre site in 2012. Seven years later, the site has grown to 1,000 acres and now includes nine acres of restored wetland, thousands of new trees and ten miles of trails for the public to enjoy along the meandering Embarras River.

    Kevin and Paul Baumann, brothers, are very knowledgeable about local cemeteries and have visited many other cemeteries in their travels internationally. They will start the day with a PowerPoint presentation on Tombstone Art. In the afternoon, Roselawn-Mound Cemetery and Old City Cemetery will be toured, with Paul and Kevin as guides. One just might hear bagpipes in the background and see re-enactments of moments in the life of pioneers who lived long ago. In case of rain, we will meet back in the library (after lunch on your own) for afternoon stories of art in the lives of those who lived here in Coles County long ago.

    This event offered through a collaboration of:  Coles County Arts Council, Academy of Lifelong Learning, Coles County Historical Society and Coles County Genealogical Society

    Registration required by 9/23 at 581-5114.  $10 per person.  16 and under N/C.

    Molly Bellamey, formerly on the National Road Association of Illinois Board of Directors, will educate on the purpose and funding of the road that began in 1811 in Cumberland, MD and ended in Vandalia, IL in 1837. She will describe pioneers who moved west, and how they managed the work and hardships of travel in the early 1800s. The National Scenic Byways Program will be examined along with things to see and do today along the Road in Illinois. Not to be missed, Molly's delightful children's book, Patch on the National Road, will be shared. Lucky attendees will go home with a copy!

    Offered by the Academy of Lifelong Learning.  Free and open to the public; registration requested at 581-5114.
