Volunteers Needed for Heritage Quarries Recreation Area Work Day

As part of our ongoing restoration efforts at the Heritage Quarries Recreation Area in Lemont, we need volunteers to help at a work day on October 20th, 9am to 11am. 

No plant ID knowledge is needed and children of all ages are welcome.

For a number of years, we have received grant money from Citgo to improve the natural landscape at the Heritage Quarries Recreation Area, a former quarry site that has been returned to nature and is being restored.   Our project area this year will be one large section by the boat launch. We will be clearing invasive species with loppers/hand saws, and dragging them to a chipper where we will be chipping right then and there to be spread on pathways.  

Our efforts will conclude with a pizza lunch!
