Blue Star Memorial Woods - Centennial Stewardship Volunteer Day - CANCELED

Tags: Volunteers, Volunteer workday, and Centennial Volunteers

Due to concerns associated with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Forest Preserves of Cook County is cancelling its public events and requiring cancellation of all permitted events until May 11. For public access in the Forest Preserves, starting Today (3/17) they have closed the nature centers and their grounds, the campgrounds, Forest Preserves General Headquarters, Caldwell Woods Warming Shelter, the Volunteer Resource Center and Dan Ryan Woods Visitor Center through May 11, with the exception of polling places for the March 17 primary election.


Join North Branch Restoration Project volunteers as we work to remove invasives such as buckthorn and garlic mustard, helping the rich understory of this ecosystem to thrive. Along with restoring the beautiful oak woodland and sedge meadow ecosystem, we are repairing gullies that carry excess stormwater to the Chicago River as well as contribute to sedimentation in the river.
