It’s been a while since we’ve gone ‘into the woods’ here at First Light, but with spring comes an increasing number of people-animal interactions. In particular, baby animal interactions. That fact also means it’s a busier than normal time at the DuPage Forest Preserve’s Willowbrook Wildlife Center and its animal hospital. First Light host Brian O’Keefe stopped by the wildlife center this week to talk with naturalist Stephanie Touzalin.
