Substantiation of this Report may be provided by my own field work at Illinois Beach State Park, which began in the summer of 2015[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] and which has now continued, at somewhat irregular intervals; further investigations have been planned with Smith Jerrod, and others. Further substantiation may be provided by published accounts on the BFRO website,[6] and others;[7] however, I am unaware of other persons conducting research and/or field investigations in this area of Illinois.

The combination of physical, visual, audible and/or olfactory events described in this Report are as follows:

  1. The large ‘X’ formation observed bordering the marsh;
  2. The use of long, straight driftwood branches, which did not originate at this location;
  3. The use of intertwined branches to bind the larger component branches together;
  4. The use of a long, gracefully arched sapling to support the long, straight branches;
  5. The location of the large ‘X’ formation, in a nearly inaccessible area of the marsh.

These behaviours, and the history of my own experience(s),[8] [9] [10] [11]may be considered sufficient to suggest the presence of EC[12] at Illinois Beach State Park, in the late autumn of 2015.

A number of subjective events also occurred. While these cannot be considered conclusive evidence, neither should they be discounted. Although it is reasonable to review the impact of non-objective stimuli in this Report, such effects, while personally quite vivid and at times overwhelming, are nonetheless nearly impossible to substantiate with any measure of certainty.
