About Evans Field- This 80 acre wooded preserve in River Grove was once home to Evans Game Farm, that shipped birds, eggs and other food all over the country. Other points of interest include remnants from a small CCC camp, and evidence of Native American use. The site supports rich floodplain forest, sedge meadow, and oak-dominated woodland communities.

*If there is rain and thunderstorms, this event will be rescheduled for the following Wednesday, September 18th.
