Bird Walks


Join us for a bird walk! These adventures are for both novice birders, and for those more seasoned. Our walks start at 8:00 am and cover 2 -3 miles over a variety of habitats. Depending on what we see, we are out for 2 to 3 hours. You can borrow binoculars or bring own. Our expert guides are dedicated bird watchers who know the parks.  


The scheduled bird walks are held twice each month, spring through fall at the McHenry Dam Day Use Area and Volo Bog. Winter walks are held once* each month.


Dates for 2020 are pending.      


Dates can change, and more may be added, so check with us first!  Registration is requested by calling 815-344-1294 or emailing us at dnr.volobog@illinois.gov.* The walks are free of charge.


*Yep, It looks like we've got the wrong email here, but registrations for all programs at both Volo Bog and Moraine Hills are handled through our Volo Bog office.


*No bird walk in December at McHenry Dam.
