2019 Prairie Tour

On July 30th, partnering with Dean and Rosemary Huisingh, we had our first ever prairie tour. Twenty people attended and from the feedback we've gotten, they had a great time. Dean and Dave Harrison were the presenters for the day and everything was fantastic. We hope to plan many more of these events in the future. To see photos of the day, click the link below. Thank you.

Wood Duck Houses:

Functional rustic wood duck houses, $55 each for front opening boxes. You will need to supply the pole, clamps and wood shavings. Put no more than 3" of wood shavings on the bottom. The rougher the wood, the more use it will get. Let us know if you are interested in purchasing one by calling 815-772-2124 ext 3. Thank you.





We still have plenty of uncleaned black oil sunflower seed for sale. No guarantees on weed content or purity of the seed but should be suitable for bird feed. There will be approximately 20 pounds for the cost of $5.00. We have bags available but you may also bring containers if you would like instead of bags. Let us know if you would like any by calling 815-772-2124 ext 3 and make up pick up arrangements.
