It’s OAKtober – Oak Awareness Month in Illinois

October is Oak Awareness month in Illinois and we invite you to celebrate with us by going on a guided walking tour at 1:30 p.m. on Sat., Oct. 30. Hikers will be led by NLI staff and volunteers through the rolling hills and oak savannas of Burr Oak Valley Nature Preserve and will talk about the ongoing restoration work, the importance of an oak habitat, and explain why this special natural area was designated an Illinois State Nature Preserve and Nature Preserve Buffer this year.
