Neal Marsh Bird MonitoringGURNEE, ILLINOIS / 2020
Living Habitats in association with Judy Pollock, bird conservation expert, is providing bird monitoring and reporting for Wetlands Research Incorporated in support of their aspirations to become a regional birding destination. Significant restoration has occurred at Neal Marsh and resulting habitat creation has supported many interesting bird species both residing at and migrating through the site. Mid-term goals include creating a viewing tower, boardwalk and bird blinds in key locations throughout the parcel. As a form of targeted support services, Living Habitats generated sketch graphics to share in early discussions about the potential to add these birding structures in various locations throughout the parcel.
