LaBagh Woods - Centennial Stewardship Volunteer Days

Tags: Volunteers, Volunteer workday, and Centennial Volunteers

Join the North Branch Restoration Project with the Centennial Volunteers and Chicago Ornithological Society as we remove buckthorn and other invasive species, protecting the native woodland, savanna and floodplain ecosystems. We are investing heavily in restoring the understory of the forest to provide much needed habitat for the over 168 species of birds who call LaBagh Woods home for part of the year.

This uncommon woodland community encompasses wet savanna, marsh, and mature floodplain woods, and is dominated by swamp white oaks. Join an inspiring movement of volunteers gathering to restore this special site along the Chicago River. Learn how to restore diverse wildlife, trees, wildflowers, and health to our forest preserves and river system. Our goal is to grow a community who will become caretakers through on-going education and training.
