Some of thesoil from Bell Bowl Prairie was moved to Cedar Cliff Forest Preserve last month.  Plan to join Friends of Illinois NaturePreserves and the Forest Preserves of Winnebago County on Sunday, June 4thfrom 9 am to 12 pm. We will walk the entire site to see why it was chosen andtalk about the stewardship opportunities here in the coming months.  We’ll do a bioblitz – a biological inventoryor biological census of the entire site – to study the site so we can monitorand care for the Bell Bowl Prairie soils and surrounding ecosystem.  No experience necessary – staff will be onhand to provide training.
