Willow Slough and Kankakee Sands.  Near Morocco, Indiana, this 8,000-acre prairie and wetland restoration was originally part of the 500,000-acre Grand Marsh of the Kankakee River.  The site is owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy, which describes it as a “birders paradise” with over 200 species recorded since restoration began in 2001. Last year we spotted 62 different species on the trip.The destination is a two-hour drive from Evanston and carpooling is recommended and may be arranged through the trip leader. Details TBA.  RSVP to Leader: Mark Vaughan,
