Spring's Treasure Hunt

Tuesday, May 12, 2020 4:00 PM by Jamie Johannsen

The forest preserves are filled with fascinating sights, sounds and scents as spring emerges. Woodland wildflowers are beginning to bloom, hundreds of bird species are migrating through and nesting, frogs are calling, streams are babbling and insects return. What can you discover in your 43 Forest Preserves of Winnebago County?

Many of you are probably like us at the RACVB and have been working from home for a while. I'm so grateful that we have the technology to easily stay connected with our team. Since we've been working from home, we (like many other companies) have utilized Zoom to be able to communicate with our staff.

Although...it gets boring looking at the same background every Zoom meeting. Why have your office (or living room, or kitchen...) wall in the background when you can "travel around Rockford" while you're on Zoom??
