About this event


We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Wednesday, September 28, 2022.

Lend a hand weeding, watering, or collecting and cleaning seeds from native grasses and flowers. Ages 12 and up; under 18 with an adult. Free. To register by phone instead, call 630-206-9630 at least five days in advance (10 days ahead for groups of five or more).

This nursery workday is at Blackwell Forest Preserve. After you register you'll receive an email with a link to a PDF with important workday instructions and a map. Please read everything carefully before attending. If you don't receive this email, contact the Forest Preserve District at 630-206-9630 or nrvolunteer@dupageforest.org.

Volunteers under 18 cannot attend the workday alone. Minimally, there must be one adult for every eight children ages 12 to 13 and one for every 10 teens ages 14 to 17. (High school students are encouraged to volunteer in groups of two or more.)

Volunteer workdays cannot be applied to court-ordered community service. For these types of projects call the Forest Preserve District's Human Resources department at 630-933-7682.

Bring water and a snack, sunscreen, and bug spray, if needed. Restroom access may be limited. We recommend you bring your own work gloves but will have gloves you can borrow.
