The best part is that no experience is needed! Groups and families are encouraged. Under 18 must monitor with an adult.

We are asking volunteers to commit to at least one habitat location and monitor at least twice per month during the breeding season (until August). Habitats are located to the north (in Glencoe, Winnetka, Northfield, and Morton Grove) and south (in Lemont, Crestwood, Riverdale, and South Holland) of the city.
