Nature Sites Throughout the Illinois River Valley
The sparkle of the Illinois River at sunrise, the cliffs of Starved Rock, wetlands full of waterfowl, the emerald fields of cropland, the calm of the forest, ribbons of birds in flight. The unique nature of the river valley offers a diversity of natural settings for those who stop and see and listen and feel the natural beauty along the Illinois River Road. Both the Illinois River and the Illinois River Valley, the water, the bluffs, and the plains, allow you to personally interact with nature.
