In 2007 Illinois Audubon Society purchased a 58-acre inholding in Lusk Creek Wilderness in the Shawnee National Forest. A subsequent survey of flora revealed an astonishing 500-plus species of plants on the tiny tract of land!

What do Indiana bats, Blanding’s turtles, dusky salamanders, greater prairie-chickens, bald eagles and timber rattlers have in common? These are all (or were in the case of the bald eagle) federal and/or state endangered species that Illinois Audubon Society has protected by purchasing and preserving habitat critical for their survival. We’re wild about our many accomplishments and want to share the excitement with you. Join us for a special presentation by Tom Clay, Executive Director of Illinois Audubon Society, who will share the story of what distinguishes the Society as the premier conservation organization in the state.

The presentation will take place at the Shawnee Chapter of the Illinois Audubon Society meeting at 7:00 pm at the Carbondale Township Hall, 217 E. Main Street. The Township Hall Parking lot is located behind the building off Monroe Street-enter through the back (green) door.
