When the Forest Preserves of Winnebago County announced their challenge to visit all 44 preserves for their centennial year in 2022, Rob Clark decided to meet the challenge. His personal “rules” were that he had to hike at least a mile or two in each one to claim it as a visit and take enough photos during his hikes that others could share in their natural beauty. Rob will share a selection of the amazing photographs of the forest preserves he visited last year, as well as his top tips for enjoying our local preserves.

Rob has enjoyed photographing nature since his high school days. In 2020, he retired from teaching mathematics for 27 years at Rock Valley College. Throughout college and his career, he tried to spend time outdoors with his camera. He has been a volunteer at the Nygren Wetland Preserve for the last 20 years, and Nygren remains one of his favorite places to photograph. He is a member of the Natural Land Institute’s Board of Trustees and is also a Board member of Nature At The Confluence, and regularly volunteers with Severson Dells’ Canoe Convoys.

This event is free but seating is limited, so please RSVP below. Donations are appreciated.
