Kane County Wild Plants Field Guide Available for Sale (again)

We have re-stocked on our inventory of Wild Plants and Natural Areas of Kane County by Dick Young. This wonderful field guide described every species of plant found in the wild in Kane County Illinois. EVERY SPECIES! This level of detail makes it the ultimate field guide for the Chicago Region, and is among the best available from southern Wisconsin on down to Central Illinois, and even eastern Iowa and northern Indiana.

The guide contains approximately 1400 species of plants with incisive and often charming descriptions of each species and simple though detailed hand drawing. The book is organized in a manner that is easy to use, with plants divided by major types (ferns, trees, shrubs, wildflower, etc) and then further divided by flower color and family.

Regular price for this book is $18. However, if you contact Frank by Friday, November 6th, you will get a special discount price of $16.
