Robinson Woods - Stewardship Volunteer Days

View Schedule
Description

Robinson Woods is a popular resting spot for migrating birds, notably spring warblers, who use the river as a corridor. The river adds interest to the topography, as high ground and bluffs open up to floodplains and dramatic views. In the remnant prairie patches, white wild indigo, nodding onion, goldenrods and blazing star lure monarchs and other butterflies.  Join a volunteer workday and help increase biodiversity in the forest preserves.
