2012 Cache River Nature Fest T-Shirt Design
Participate in Cache River Nature Fest and play a part in restoring the Cache River wetlands! Net proceeds from t-shirt and FRIENDS merchandise sales, donations, and pledge dollars collected from the Birding Blitz competition go towards wetland restoration & education projects within the Cache River watershed and surrounding area. Nature Fest t-shirts are available for sale at the Cache River Wetlands Center.
The 2012 Cache River Nature Fest t-shirt features original artwork of a Barn Owl perched on a Bald Cypress tree. The Barn Owl is a State Endangered Species in Illinois, and although rare throughout most of the state, the Cache River Wetlands play a vital role in providing habitat and breeding grounds for this striking bird!
Youth and adult sizes available.
Location: Cache River Wetlands Center
