We offer hands-on habitat restoration training – invasive plant removal and native seed collection – plus enriching conservation education on the 3rd Saturday of every month between April and October from 9 a.m. until Noon. Participant names are entered into a drawing for a chance to win a prize!

Today we will concentrate on brush removal at Kishwaukee Gorge Forest Preserve, and afterwards we’ll go on a guided Wildflower Walk!
