If you’d like to find out, there’s a presentation by renowned wildlife instructors Bob and Kathy Andrini coming up at 7 p.m. Jan. 30, at the Campton Township Community Center, 5N082 Old La Fox Road.
The Andrinis are retired educators who still regularly teach nature programs for local organizations, and birding classes for the College of DuPage.
