Requirements & Documents
Requirements

We meet on the first and third Saturday of each month from 9 to Noon, year around. We cut and remove invasive species such as buckthorn and other activities to restore the ecological health of Deer Grove. We are of all ages, and we share a common interest in restoring and protecting our local natural areas. Friendly people, c'mon out!
We work as long as it isn't raining (at least not too hard) so dress warmly for cold weather with good work shoes for walking in rough terrain. Layering is always good. Long sleeve shirts and pants are usually good even in warm weather to avoid mosquitoes and poison ivy. Bring insect repellent if you are sensitive. Work gloves and tools are provided. Feel free to bring water and anything else you might want while working.

Come out, meet local citizens who care about our local ecosystems and learn about our natural heritage at our Nation's very first forest preserve, an Illinois Nature Preserve.
