Rolling On the River

The Sangamon River

Traveling east to the heart of Illinois you will find our capital city and Main Street town of Springfield.

This town is the home of Abraham Lincoln and the new Presidential Library and Museum.

Located on the Sangamon River, there are many things to see. One of the great things to see is the abundance of wildlife.

The Sangamon River is an important area for migrating birds, including American white pelicans. The Sangamon River is also home to the wood duck and the Illinois mud turtle.
