The radiant red-headed woodpecker, which makes its nests in the oak forests of the Chicago Wilderness Region, is in trouble. As the globally rare oak savannas it relies on have been transformed into farmland, neighborhoods, and other types of development, it has lost its home. As a result, populations are in steep decline.
The good news is that we can help. By restoring oak forests in the Chicago Wilderness Region, we can help the red-headed woodpecker rebound. Your donation will help Chicago Wilderness, The Nature Conservancy, and other partners protect habitat, find new natural areas to restore, and reach out to private landowners about what they can do to make a difference.
