      Please join local, state and national community and environmental leaders
      to celebrate all the productive work that’s being done to conserve bird
      habitat in Illinois.

      On Wednesday, October 6, 2004 at 10:00, the City of Chicago, Audubon, and
      the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will announce the identification and
      recognition of 48 Illinois Important Bird Areas (IBAs) in Illinois.

      The sites are the first in the state to be designated state-level Important
      Bird Areas. For more information about the Illinois IBA program, visit
      www.habitatproject.org
