In Livingston County, IL it's another disapointing no-fly day. Westerly winds aloft are blasting between 20 and 40 mph. But here's something good:

Local residents of Fairbury, Pontiac, and the surrounding area are invited to see a presentation by Joe Duff at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow (Sunday evening) at the McDowell Methodist Church basement. Coffee, cider, apples and cookies are on the menu, as well as Joe's great images and amazing video clips and stories. The McDowell Methodist Church is about half way between Fairbury and Pontiac, just past the corner of 1400 N Road and 1800 E Road. (Rt. 24 west of Fairbury to 1800 E. Rd; N on 1800 E Rd. to 1400 N. Rd. East on 1400 N. Rd few hundred yards to McDowell Methodist Church.) Come and learn about all the work that goes into reintroducing Whooping cranes into Eastern North America, and the cranes that we are migrating through your area!

The TrikeCam broadcasts LIVE each day they fly.

In the Classroom: Journal or Discussion
