Centennial Volunteer: Whistler Woods

Tags: Centennial Volunteers and Volunteers

Be a part of river revitalization by joining an inspiring movement of volunteers gathering to restore five special sites along the Chicago and Calumet Rivers. Celebrating our rivers and the 100th anniversary of the Forest Preserve of Cook County, Centennial Volunteers are a part of a community of like-minded individuals who are not afraid to get dirty, get some exercise and have fun outside. 

Volunteers sign up to learn more about our forest preserves, enjoy a natural area close to home, and make a tangible difference to our environment. Volunteers will also meet people interested in improving our local environmental resources, will be trained by experts in restoration and resource management, and be involved in regular volunteer days on the weekends throughout the year.

Whistler Woods contains oaks up to 300 years old, but invasive brush prevents their acorns from sprouting. Come join a volunteer crew that will cut back the invasives and improve the habitat at this preserve. Our goal is to grow a community of people who will become caretakers through on-going education and training.
