Grand Prairie Friends adds new acreage in Coles County


January is a very busy month for Illinois wildlife- including our local bald eagles, bobcats and beavers. Owls are very active and noisy this month as well. And Grand Prairie Friends has numerous activities to keep you busy too…through volunteering.

Grand Prairie Friends was able to purchase 56 additional acres at two new nature areas in Coles County called Warbler Bluff and Warbler Crossing.
