With prairie restorations, woodlands, old fields, marshes and of course Volo Bog itself, VBSNA affords birders the opportunity to see a variety of species - 193 species have been documented on site! Often several species are seen and heard even before even leaving the parking lot. Visit http://ebird.org/ebird/hotspot/L322146 to explore our most recent sightings. Bring binoculars and field guides, or borrow from our leaders. Walk is approximately 3 miles and takes from 2 - 3+ hours with weather and luck in birding. Adults and attentive kids ages 6 and older are welcome. Meet in the main parking lot. Registration is requested at 815-344-1294 or dnr.volobog@illinois.gov  Group size is limited - Walk-ins welcome if space allows but walk may be cancelled if minimum registration is not met 24 hours prior. Co-sponsored, and led by members of, McHenry County Audubon. Visit www.McHenryAudubon.org
