Dedicated to restoring the wetland resources of the Midwest

Your donation will go four times further this spring
The Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation has offered TWI a $21,000 grant for the Sandy Hollow restoration at the Dixon Waterfowl Refuge if we can raise $7,000 in new donations for the project by May 31. That means your gift to restore rare sand habitats will go four times as far!
August 3–4 at the Dixon Waterfowl Refuge
Teams of citizen scientists will join experts in surveying the 3,000-acre site for as many species as possible among dozens of different organism groups—from fungi to birds, mammals to ants, and reptiles to plants! No matter your experience level, there will be ways for you to be part of this event.
VISIT THE DIXON WATERFOWL REFUGE
Climb the observation tower, hike the trail system, enjoy excellent birdwatching, or during the summer paddle and fish on the lakes.
Many parts of Midewin are open to the public for hiking, birdwatching, bison viewing, and other activities.
