This week, First Light host Brian O’Keefe went into the woods with DuPage Forest Preserve ranger David Sima. It has become increasingly common over the past 10 to 15 years for people to encounter wild turkeys in a number of forest preserves. With Thanksgiving just a few days away, David and Brian met at the St. James Farm Forest Preserve in west Wheaton in hopes of finding one of the county’s flocks of wild turkeys
Periodically at First Light, host Brian O'Keefe goes ‘Into The Woods’ to bring you a story about the local floral and fauna, you know the flowers, plants, insects, and critters that call this region home. This week, Brian stopped by the DuPage Forest Preserve District’s Willowbrook Wildlife Center in Glen Ellyn.
