About the Event

In the midst of farm fields, a Central Illinois tree stump has attracted a phenomenal variety of wintering raptors, including two rare Prairie Falcons. Grand Prairie Friends and Champaign County Audubon Society are hosting this free premiere, with support from conservation partners including LCF. 

Come at 2 pm for a Conservation Reception: Nibble, chat, and trade stories with local conservation community members (free snacks/cash bar). The 20-minute film starts at 3 pm, followed by a behind-the-scenes panel with producer Bob Dolgan and birding cast/stars of the film. 

This Turnstone film is the first in a planned "The Prairie State" series featuring the landscape that once dominated Illinois. RSVP on the Grand Prairie Friends website.
