Beaubien Woods - Centennial Volunteers Stewardship Workdays
Beaubien Woods is located along the Calumet River on the south border of Chicago. At the time of settlement it was best described as a mosaic of sand prairie, marsh, and savanna. The main work area consists of remnant marsh and former prairie. The marsh has been invaded by wetland plants that need to be reduced or removed to improve the natural plant communities there. The former prairie has had anthropogenic disturbance and activities there will revolve around removal of non-native brush.
Friends is partnered with the Field Museum and the Forest Preserves of Cook County to improve this natural area. Please join us in this important work.
