Lost Mound Birding Tour
September 15 @ 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM$5
Take a journey through portions of the Lost Mound Unit, formerly known as the Savanna Army Depot, which is the largest remnant of sand prairie/sand savanna in Illinois. Founded in 1917, the 13,062 acre Depot was used for munitions manufacturing, testing and storage. The depot was officially closed in 2000 and 9,827 acres became the Lost Mound Unit. Lost Mound derives its name from a prominent geologic feature “Lost Mound” located in the adjacent bluff-land.
Enjoy a session of a driving birding tour in the new 10 passenger wheel chair accessible van, a presentation of the work being done to study and protect the native species with the opportunity to hike and observe wildlife with a break for lunch (please bring your own).
