Nurture Nature at a R.E.A.P. Volunteer Workday*

October 21 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

 

Pecatonica Wetlands Forest Preserve (4550 N. Pecatonica Road, Pecatonica)

This preserve along the Pecatonica River is made up of 1,048 acres of flood-plain forest, oxbow pond marshes and upland forest, boasting outstanding spring flora and birdlife.  Today volunteers will collect native prairie seed and remove invasive brush.  Afterwards, we’ll be treated to a Guided Waterfowl Hike!

RSVP HERE!

  • Proper off-trail outdoor workday attire recommended – long pants, long sleeves & sturdy, waterproof shoes or boots (no sandals/flip flops, please)
  • Parent/Guardian signature required on waiver for youth volunteers under the age of 18.
  • Bring your water bottle – wear your insect repellent & sunscreen. A light snack & work gloves are provided.
  • In case of rain, workday will be cancelled – check our Facebook page for up-to-the-minute event information!

*R∙E∙A∙P (which stands for Restoration ∙ Education ∙ Appreciation ∙ Preservation) is a group of passionate volunteers from all walks of life who are committed to ecological preservation at the Forest Preserves of  Winnebago County. These volunteers are focused on “nurturing nature” and building a culture of stewards who will ensure that our ecosystems remain healthy for generations to come. Experience is not required, and on-going training is provided! R∙E∙A∙P hosts habitat restoration workdays on the third Saturday of each month (April through October) at various forest preserves.  Nature hikes and other enriching educational activities are included after each morning of satisfying work, and participant names are entered into a drawing to win a prize!
