Forest Glen Woods - Centennial Volunteer Stewardship Workdays

Tags: Volunteers, Centennial Volunteers, and Volunteer workday

An important corridor for migratory birds, Forest Glen is part of the Lower North Branch Preserves.  This unique woodland, savanna, and floodplain ecosystem needs help from our volunteer community to remove invasive plants, collect and distribute native seeds, and reduce erosion issues.


Tools and instructions are provided by the steward. It is not necessary to pre-register, but if a group of more than 5-6 are planning to come, please let the steward know that, so that adequate supplies can be provided. Dress for the weather and the outdoors. We strongly encourage boots/sturdy shoes and clothes that can get wear and tear. Natural fabrics are best, especially when brushpiles may be burned.



Meeting Place:

5420 N. Forest Glen
