"Outside" airs from 4:30-5 p.m. Mondays on WKCC-FM (91.1), a start-up public radio station in Kankakee. Click here for online listening options.

Walk, the science director for the Illinois chapter of The Nature Conservancy, goes through the changes of the landscape of Illinois and what they mean now.

I was the one who led him into the talk about prairie chickens, a bird with very strange courting rituals and some odd connections to conservation issues over the decades in Illinois.

Last Monday, Walk spent the show discussing the gathering of information for Illinois Birds: A Century of Change.

There is a Facebook page for Outside with Dale Bowman and Joel Greenberg.
