Sterne's Woods Volunteer Work Day - 5.19.24

Time: 9:00 AM

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

This month we will meet a week early to avoid Memorial Day weekend.  We'll resume cutting & stacking brush east of the oak knoll, and also pull any remaining garlic mustard encountered.  Please join us this Sunday, May 19, from 9-11AM.


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:  June 23 and July 28.
