Mar 05 Tuesday
On Tuesday, March 5th at 7 PM Northwest Illinois Audubon Society well be offering a viewing of the 2023 documentary film FLUDDLES with Bob Dolgan producer of the film available for discussion after the film.
FLUDDLES chronicles the wildlife of agricultural wetlands of Illinois. Sometimes simply described as “big puddles,” fluddles appear in the spring and fall and provide habitat and forage for a diversity of waterfowl and shorebird species. FLUDDLES takes viewers on a journey to these secret, oft-fleeting wildernesses in a time when Illinois has lost 90% of its original wetlands. FLUDDLES features those who enjoy the beauty of wetlands while showcasing the movement under way to construct more wetlands, which provide critical habitat, reduce flooding and erosion, and help to ensure healthier waterways.
The program is open to the public and will be held at St. John United Church of Christ located at 1010 Park Blvd in Freeport. For more information about the program you can visit Northwest Illinois Audubon Society (nwilaudubon.org) or contact Teresa at 815-238-3963 or at email@example.com
