Virtual Tour: Emiquon Nature Preserve

Virtual Emiquon lets digital visitors experience this beautiful, 7,000-acre Nature Conservancy preserve in Illinois. Panoramic images in this mobile-optimized website provide a 360-degree view of Emiquon’s lakeside observatory and boat launch.

Each highlighted feature of the preserve is accompanied by an introductory video. Images of the fish and birds—and audio of the feathered denizens—found at Emiquon help birdwatchers and recreation-seekers identify the vibrant animal life to be found. With a custom map overlaying Google map services, visitors can learn more about the preserve’s recreational opportunities. 

An interactive timeline explores the 10,000-year history of the region and the important work being done to restore Emiquon to a functional floodplain wetland is highlighted.
