Bluff Spring Fen - Stewardship Volunteer Days

View Schedule
Description

Bluff Spring Fen is a 100-acre Illinois Nature Preserve. The Fen is a mosaic of upland, wetland, and wooded remnant plant communities and is home to over a dozen threatened and endangered species. Over the past 30 years, dedicated volunteers have transformed this once desolate dumping ground into a world-renowed natural area. The Friends of Bluff Spring Fen continue to restore diversity to the site at twice monthly workdays.
