Calling all volunteers!
We'll dig the holes if you'll plant the trees! Join Forest Preserve District staff and volunteers to help plant hundreds of oaks in honor of Earth Day and National Public Lands Day, each year. We need hundreds of volunteers to simply plant trees in pre-dug holes, water and mulch. It's easy! These events are perfect for individuals, families, scouts or other groups. Plant as many trees as you like. Be sure to arrive at 10 a.m. sharp! We'll plant trees until 1 p.m. or until we run out of trees — whichever comes first!
The event takes place on April 18 at Fitchie Creek Forest Preserve, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Groups of 10 or more, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 630-208-8662 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP. Groups of less than 10 do not need to register in advance.
