Centennial Volunteers Stewardship Days
We make a difference in the ecological heath of the preserves and ultimately the Chicago River system, and by working together and having some fun in our river-edge preserves. Volunteers remove invasive vegetation, collect native seeds, brush pile burns, and more. Learn more about Centennial Volunteers or sign up to volunteer.
Founded in 2014, the Centennial Volunteers program is a partnership between Friends of the Chicago River, the Forest Preserves of Cook County, Friends of the Forest Preserves, and the Field Museum which encourages people to adopt a site by consistently volunteering there, and perhaps taking Forest Preserve training to act as a workday leader.
