Birding by the Big Lake
Spring Gathering 2019
May 17-19
hosted by Lake-Cook Chapter

Lake/Cook Chapter is hosting the 2019 Illinois Audubon Society Spring Gathering, which will draw IAS members from around the state. The weekend will feature Friday and Saturday night speakers, nearly 20 field trips, and a raffle and silent auction whose proceeds will support future chapter programs and initiatives.

On Friday night, local raptor photographer and enthusiast Vic Berardi will discuss why Lake County has two hawk watches just a short distance apart, what’s been seen at them, and his personal hawk watching highlights. On Saturday night, in keeping with the “Big Lake” theme of the weekend, David Ullrich, longtime director of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative, will provide insights into the past and present environmental challenges faced by the Great Lakes.

A full schedule of field trips and registration information will be available in January.  Prior registration is required and opens January 1, 2019.  Members and non-members are welcome.
