Free public tours of the Nachusa Grasslands Visitor Center and Bison Unit will be offered by TNC volunteers from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on various Saturdays from June to September 2020 (if Illinois' "Stay at Home" order is lifted and The Nature Conservancy allows public gatherings at the preserve):

Tours will be limited to 10 people per tour group leader.
Up to two tours will be offered each day, depending on leader availability.
Children accompanied by adults may attend as long as they can sit safely on a bench in a truck bed.
Groups may sign up if there is enough space available.
Space will be reserved for people who have registered in advance.
Reservations will be available on a monthly basis. You can only sign up during the month that the tour is offered. Signups will be posted at 7 a.m. on the first day of each month and usually fill up quickly.
