  The three photos represent natural beauty in Dunham Township. The last photo is the Rush Creek flowing after the heavy rains of June 2019. 

 The Young Red Tail hawk that was found by a Township employee on Streit Road in August 2019 was released at Rush Creek in October after being rehabilitated at the McHenry County Conservation District. Thank you MCCD for all your care towards the hawk.
