Blue Star Memorial Woods Volunteer Workday
Blue Star Woods is a 20 acre site of high quality woods that includes a popular picnic area. Activities will include thinning of occasional buckthorn and other invasive trees and stormwater management. Volunteers will seed areas to stop erosion and allow oak and shrub reproduction.
Be a part of river and forest revitalization by joining an inspiring movement of volunteers gathering to restore this special site along the Chicago 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.
