Clay, the executive director of the Illinois Audubon Society, and Vern LaGesse, an ecological restorationist and president of  Friends of the Sangamon Valley, announced in June their plans to breathe new life into the Adams Wildlife Sanctuary [see “Restoring Adams Wildlife Sanctuary,” by Amanda Robert, June 11].

At 7 p.m. Thursday (tonight), the pair will update the public on progress made in the 12-acre parcel at the north end of the sanctuary, as well as in the 100-foot corridor along Clear Lake and Forrest avenues, in the September Springfield Audubon Society program. They’ll also discuss the natural and cultural history of the entire 40-acre site, future restoration and information on how volunteers can help.

It’s free to attend the program, held at the Adams Wildlife Sanctuary, 2315 Clear Lake Avenue.
