Each fall and spring, volunteers join prescribed burn crews led by District staff. Though prescribed burning only happens a few days per season, it remains one of the most effective tools for restoration, and volunteer involvement allows us to cover larger areas.
Volunteers are required to complete the Chicago Wilderness Burn Crew Member Training Course, which we will provide for free for McHenry County Conservation District registered volunteers.
Please Note: This volunteer opportunity can be quite physical and may involve off-trail hiking for several hours at a time. Protective equipment provided. Bring a sack lunch.
Bring a lunch and water. Wear clothing made of natural fibers (ex. cotton, jeans) and comfortable boots. If weather allows, we will do a field exercise. Please contact Jackie Bero at firstname.lastname@example.org or (815) 219-1549 if you have any questions.
