Seed Collecting at Whistler Woods

Tags: Volunteers, Volunteer workday, and Centennial Volunteers

Collecting and redistributing seeds will be the focus of a land restoration effort August 8, 2019 at Whistler Woods, a Cook County forest preserve near south suburban Riverdale. Volunteers for the seed project, scheduled from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., will learn basic plant identification skills and seed collecting techniques. No experience is necessary for this initiative that will improve wildlife habitat, raise water quality, and increase storm water absorption in this natural area.
