This informative class is presented by Connie McIntosh, U of I Extension Master Naturalist and Nature Photographer. We’ve all heard misconceptions about our local wildlife that we may believe as fact. During this program, we are going to bust those myths and gain a better understanding of the natural world. Join us to clear up the most common myths, uncover lesser known facts, and have fun playing Fact or Fiction as we learn about nature right here in the Rockford region.
