Whistler Woods Volunteer Workday

Whistler Woods contains oaks up to 300 years old, but invasive brush prevents their acorns from sprouting. Come join a volunteer crew that will cut back the invasives and improve the habitat at this preserve for plants, animals and people. 

Be a part of river and forest revitalization by joining an inspiring movement of volunteers gathering to restore this special site along the Little Calumet River. Learn what it takes to restore diverse wildlife, trees, wildflowers, and health in our forest preserves and our river system. Our goal is to grow a community of people who will become caretakers and stewards through on-going education and training.
