Special Sneak Peek of original WTVP production Nature Returns to Emiquon

Mother Nature has returned beauty to a parcel of land along the Illinois River in Fulton County. What were once thousands of acres of row crops and cattle are now restored to a mosaic of natural habitats. Seeds that were dormant for more than 80 years, having lain below plowed furrows, have sprung to life by just adding water. Life as it once was for millennia has returned to Emiquon Preserve.

WTVP presents a cinematic 1/2 hour production of the beautiful journey of Nature Returns to Emiquon.
