Sterne’s Woods & Fen Volunteer Work Day - 8.28.22
Time: 9:00 AM
Location: Sterne's Woods, 5617 Hillside Rd, Crystal Lake
Please join us on Sunday, August 28, from 9-11AM. We will finally finish clearing a pernicious patch of honeysuckle at the southeast corner of the abandoned horse track.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org. Our next two Sunday work dates are: September 25 and October 23.
