Sterne’s Woods & Fen Volunteer Work Day - 9.25.22

Time: 9:00 AM

Location: Sterne's Woods, 5617 Hillside Rd, Crystal Lake

Please join us on Sunday, September 25th, from 9-11AM.  We have a bit of clearing left to do at the SE corner of the old horse track, and then we'll resume our work south of the stream.


We meet once a month at Sterne's outdoor pavilion, 5617 Hillside Dr. from 9-11AM.  Volunteers have a chance to learn about restoration ecology and what makes Sterne’s Fen special.  Please bring a water bottle and a pair of work gloves.  The park district will supply loppers and bow saws.  Invasives like honeysuckle and buckthorn are crowding out the native fen species.  The brush also prevents the use of controlled burns on the fen. Email Brice Alt, volunteer site steward, to receive a monthly workday reminder:  Our next two Sunday work dates are:  October 23 and November 20.
