Volunteer Event: Invasive Woody Removal

Date(s): Mon, 2/19/2024 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Forest Preserve: Homer Lake
Location: Interpretive Center

The natural resources department has 3 upcoming winter volunteer events. We will be removing invasive species, such as autumn olive, honeysuckle, and Callery pear. Weather pending, we will likely have a burn pile at every event. Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a little smoky and follow the arrow signs once you enter the preserve. We will supply all the tools. Let me know if you have any questions.


Thurs. Dec 21st: 1-3 pm; Winter Solstice. We will have a bonfire and hot cocoa afterward!
