R.E.A.P. (Restoration. Education. Appreciation. Preservation.)

June 15 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

 

Deer Run Forest Preserve 

R.E.A.P. Volunteer Workdays offer hands-on habitat restoration training – invasive plant removal and native seed collection – plus enriching conservation education on the 3rd Saturday of every month from 9 a.m. until Noon. No experience necessary – we teach you! Participant names are entered into a drawing for a chance to win a prize!

Today R.E.A.P. Workday Volunteers will focus on native seed collection at this 594.8-acre preserve, which is accessible from River Road as well as the south branch of the Kishwaukee River. After our work is done, we will take a canoe trip!  First come, first served – advance registration is required due to the limited number of canoes available.

RSVP HERE!

It is important to remember:

Proper off-trail outdoor workday attire recommended – long pants, long sleeves & sturdy, waterproof shoes (no sandals or flip-flops, please)

Light snack & work gloves provided – bring your water bottle – wear your insect repellent & sunscreen

In case of rain, our workday will be canceled – check our Facebook page for up-to-the-minute event information
