Location: Tekakwitha Woods Forest Preserve
Each year, the Forest Preserve District of Kane County hosts a planting event in honor of Earth Day. We need the public's help to plant hundreds of trees on this special occasion. The District's Natural Resources staff will dig the holes, while volunteers do the planting. Come place the trees in pre-dug holes, tamp-down dirt, add water and mulch -- it's easy! Earth Day events are perfect for individuals, families, scouts or other groups. You're welcome to plant one tree, or stay and plant throughout the entire event -- it's up to you! Be sure to arrive at 9 a.m. sharp. We'll plant until 12 p.m. or until we run out of stock -- whichever comes first! Groups of 10 or more, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 630-762-2741 or email us to RSVP. Individuals or groups of less than 10 do not need to register in advance.
