Sterne’s Woods & Fen Volunteer Work Day - 9.24.23

Time: 9:00 AM

Location: Sternes Woods, 5617 Hilliside Rd, Crystal Lake

Please join us next Sunday, September 24, from 9-11AM.  We will continue cutting and stacking brush near the oak knoll.  


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.  Wear long pants and long sleeves.  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:  Oct 22 and Nov 19.
