One week before the Super Bowl, eagles were getting special attention across north-central Illinois. Several conservation groups gathered at Starved Rock State Park last weekend for a celebration of bald eagles. Increasingly, you don’t have to go to either Illinois River or Mississippi River communities to see the national symbol. First Light host Brian O'Keefe joined the Naperville based Conservation Foundation for a hike through a natural area it owns in Ottawa.
