Land donated for bird sanctuary
LEAF RIVER – Northwest Illinois Audubon Society has accepted a land gift from Joanne Styles.
The nearly 50 acres are at the headwaters of Silver Creek, 2 miles south of the Leaf River. It will be maintained as a bird sanctuary and be used to educate about nature. Birds using the Rock River valley migrate there.
The wooded portion of the property includes oak and hickory trees. Silver Creek, a spring-fed stream that runs through the property, provides habitat to a variety of aquatic creatures.
