Join the Harbor Country Hikers as they spend some time indoors to see a documentary about the diverse ecology of the Grand Kankakee Marsh. Pat Fisher, HCH President, will be sharing some folklore about the Kankakee river towns of early times. Some of the stories are weird – some may even be true! Nature lovers most welcome.
This award-winning documentary reveals the diverse ecology and controversial saga of the Grand Kankakee Marsh – an area in the Midwest that, less than a century ago, resembled the swamplands of Florida’s Everglades. Join the filmmakers as they explore the astonishing history of the environmental treasure often referred to as the “Everglades of the North.”
