Centennial Volunteers Workdays

Tags: Centennial Volunteers

Founded in 2014, the Centennial Volunteers program is a partnership between Friends of the Chicago River, the Forest Preserves of Cook County, and Friends of the Forest Preserves and encourages people to adopt a site by consistently volunteering there, and perhaps taking Forest Preserve training to act as a workday leader.

There are seven sites all throughout the Chicagoland region to volunteer at and have fun while really making a difference in the ecological heath of the preserves and ultimately the Chicago River system. Volunteer activities range from removing invasive vegetation, to collecting native seeds, wildlife monitoring projects, brush pile burns, and more. To learn more or sign up for a workday please click here.
