Chicago Audubon Bird Walk

Bluff Spring Fen, Elgin

Volunteers and bio-blitz participants have counted 450 plant species, 57 butterfly species, more than 20 dragonfly species and almost 100 migratory and nesting bird species in this unique Illinois Nature Preserve. Late summer will be a delight for flowers, early migrant birds and late season butterflies. This is the first of a series of four walks to the far corners of the Cook County Forest Preserves. Entrance to the preserve is through Bluff City Cemetery, 945 Bluff City Blvd, Elgin. Meet at the cemetery entrance to make our way to the trail head. For directions: Leaders: John Elliott ([email protected]) and Laurel Ross ([email protected]).
