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

August 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

 

Kieselburg Forest Preserve ~ Scouts Day!

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 and Scouts will be focused on native seed collection.  This forest preserve is one of five that has been awarded funding for habitat improvement for the federally threatened Rusty Patched Bumblebee. After our work is done, we will take a guided bumblebee hike!

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

Mark your calendar for upcoming R.E.A.P. Volunteer Workdays (all 9 a.m. until Noon)
