View migrating waterfowl from the observation tower at this marvelous wetland restoration site along the Illinois River. A trail also follows these backwater lakes. Meet at 10:00 a.m. From I-39 south, take Rt. 71 west to Rt. 26. Turn south (left) on Rt. 26. Go approximately 2.5 miles south. Turn right on Hennepin Farms Rd. (paved road). Take the first right turn onto a sandy road (past the first house on the right). Follow the sandy road 300 feet to the parking lot at the observation tower. Bring scopes and food for the day.
