Southern Illinois and Rend Lake is noted as the winter home for thousands of Canada Geese. But that's just the beginning of the great diversity of wildlife to be found here at Rend Lake. Take a hike on one of our nature trails and discover a wildlife adventure at every turn. Rise early in the morning and quietly watch for deer as they feed at the forest edge. Watch a Red Tailed Hawk as it sails majestically overhead. Take time to listen to the forest. Wildlife is everywhere.
Rend Lake beckons... come and enjoy Mother Natures gifts...it's all here for you to watch and enjoy.
