Increased camping fees and 72 hours of birding

  • It now costs more to park your RV in state-owned campgrounds. The fee hike applies to sites with electric hookups and to holiday use of those hookup sites. Tent campers rejoice–no fee hikes for you.
  • Eddie Callaway, a 25-year-old birder/photographer in Rockford, Illinois, is engaged in a 72-hour birding extravaganza. Along with some nice shots of the birds he’s counted, his blog, “Birdfreak: The Bird Conservation Blog” includes landscape photos of Deer Run Forest Preserve that are stunning.
