The more than, 7,800 acres at Kankakee Sands provide refuge for some of the fastest declining bird species in Americia. Watch, too, for the glass lizard, a legless reptile resembling a snake, but has ear holes and eyelids! Wildflowers will overwhelm your senses as you hike along three trails. Hike two miles of black oak savanna to the once-booming town of Conrad, now no more than a ghost town with crumbling foundations. And with the recent addition of bison on the site, your journey to Kankakee Sands is sure to be memorable.
