This Sunday, October 27
Join Middlefork Audubon and the Illinois Native Plant Society as we enjoy a hike through portions of Russell Duffin Woods to relish the changing fall colors! Russell Duffin is a beautiful 200-acre forested Nature Preserve along the Vermilion River with stately oaks and hickories in the uplands and beech-maple-tulip poplar forest in the deeply dissecting ravines. We will hike to the Observation Tower where anyone that wishes can climb to the top to get a great overview of the Vermilion River valley.
The trail contains numerous long, very steep slopes, but if you are up to the terrain, it is a beautiful hike. Please bring water for the hike.
Meet at the Russell Duffin Woods parking lot at 2:00 PM.
This is the first parking lot to the right after entering the Forest Glen Preserve
In the event of rain – the hike will be cancelled
