Requirements & Documents
Requirements

All individuals should consider their level of risk for the COVID-19 virus prior to engaging in any volunteer service.

Review the Forest Preserve''s COVID-19 page each day before volunteering for important updates and safety precautions.

DO NOT attempt to volunteer if in the last 14 days you:
1. have any of the symptoms related to COVID-19 as identified by the Centers for Disease Control
2. have traveled to any foreign country or states with a high incidence of COVID-19 infections

Staff and volunteer leaders will implement protocols to ensure physical distancing, glove and mask usage, and tool sanitizing.

Wear all essential personal protection equipment (PPE) including a face mask.
Always keep a minimum distance of six feet from other volunteers.
Plan accordingly, as many public restrooms are closed.
Bring your own gloves, snack, water bottle, sunscreen, bug spray, and hand sanitizer.

Tools and instructions are provided by the steward. It is not necessary to pre-register, but if a group of more than 5-6 are planning to come, please let the steward know that, so that adequate supplies can be provided.

Dress for the weather and the outdoors. We strongly encourage boots/sturdy shoes and clothes that can get wear and tear. Natural fabrics are best, especially if brushpiles may be burned.
