Trail cameras will keep a digital eye on the critters that cross paths at the Andresen Nature Center in Fulton. On Friday, crews were installing the cameras that will automatically capture pictures of creatures great and small. The cameras are a picture-perfect way for the city-owned center to advance its mission of educating, inspiring, and encouraging people to have an appreciation for nature. The plan is to eventually post the pictures to a website – not yet up and running – so people can see what’s traveling along the trails. The Center at 409 N. Fourth St. is open for scheduled special events, and is available for school field trips, continuing education programs, and private tours. E-mail AndresenNatureCenter@gmail.com or call 815-208-7059 for more information.
