Welcome to Gremel Wildlife Sanctuary in Amboy Illinois. The Illinois Audubon Society purchased 395 acres of the former Green Wing Environmental Laboratory from Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois on December 14, 2016. The parcel is located within two miles of the Society’s Amboy Marsh Nature Preserve and provides an opportunity to further expand critical habitat that was once part of the magnificent 100,000-plus acre complex of wetlands in Lee County called Inlet and Winnebago Swamps.
Gremel hopes that generations of young land stewards and bird enthusiasts will now be able to visit and enjoy the sanctuary. Public access will be encouraged upon completion of a parking area off Lewis Road.
