The Springfield Audubon Society and the Stewards at Adams Wildlife Sanctuary would like to extend our thanks to all of you who supported the Sanctuary Stewardship Appeal by the Illinois Audubon Society.
We are pleased to announce that we have taken delivery on a new UTV (Utility Transport Vehicle).
We have only had it available for one workday and it has already made a dramatic difference in what we can accomplish.
We would also like to thank Paul Biggers for his donation of a new STIHL chainsaw to the Sanctuary. It has already been put to use cutting down a large tree that was a danger to the trails.
In addition, we would like to thank Allen Andrews for his donation of a large water tank which allows us to more efficiently water all the new trees and shrubs.
The Sanctuary Stewardship Appeal is still ongoing so if you have not yet donated please consider making a donation.

Save the Dates!

Prairie State Conservation Coalition (PSCC) is a non-profit organization created to assist conservation land trusts, land owners, and communities in their efforts to protect land and water resources in Illinois. This Hike App was created with the support of PSCC, the Donnelley Foundation, and the Grand Victoria Foundation to further enhance public awareness and foster community interactions with Illinois natural areas and open lands. With this App, land trust organizations in Illinois now have an outlet to provide interactive tours of their project sites. These tours are guided by GPS and conveniently available on your mobile devices. The Hike App leads you through an interpretive hike in a natural area of your choosing. Limited hikes are currently available; more hikes are coming soon. This app features the history of Adams Wildlife Sanctuary, as well as, detailed maps of the property.
