Autumn at Kankakee Sands

Colors abound at Kankakee Sands when bottle gentian bloom, sassafras trees turn orange and red, oaks turn brown and yellow, and little blue stem grass turns orange.

Snow geese and sandhill cranes have begun stopping over during migration. Other migratory birds such as Virginia rails can be seen as the head south for the winter.
