Illinois touches the southern edge of Lake Michigan and stretches south into rich prairie and farmland. It is home to thousands of animal species, including stand-outs like Bald Eagle, Mountain Bluebird, and state mammal White-tailed Deer. There are broadleaf forests, mixed forests, shrublands, pothole lakes, and rivers to explore, all of which offer continuous learning opportunities. Many looking to deepen their connection with the land look to wildlife, and it helps to have a portable reference like Illinois Wildlife to cut through the clutter and get to know the most familiar animals. This beautifully illustrated collection features 140 common mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, and butterflies and includes an ecoregion map showing over 20 wildlife-viewing hotspots and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel pocket folding guide is the ideal companion for educators, learners, naturalists, birders, and wildlife enthusiasts who wish to get better acquainted with the wildlife of Illinois. Made in the USA.
