DECATUR — Join the Friends of Lincoln Trail Homestead State Park for an evening of adventure for the fourth Mini BioBlitz of the season surveying insects, bats, owls, and frogs. We will have the help of an expert scientist, Phil Nixon, a retired entomologist of University of Illinois Extension. Phil is often seen as a panelist on Midwest Gardner and has done presentations for Master Gardeners and Master Naturalists. Phil will help us identify moths and night insects. In addition, Jeannie Barnes, recently retired from the Illinois Natural History Survey, will bring a bat detector to listen for bats. We will also listen for owls and frogs and other critters who are out in the night. For reservations or more information email [email protected]
The iNaturalist program will be explained so that everyone can download the app and use it on their mobile device if they would like.
The Park is about 10 miles straight west of Decatur off Route 36. Drive past Harristown to Lincoln Trail Memorial Parkway; go south three miles. The park is on the east side of the Parkway.
