Spring Creek - Stewardship Volunteer Days

View Schedule
Description

The Spring Creek Forest Preserve is one of only a few Cook County preserves large enough to sustain populations of rare animals, grassland birds and a rich variety of habitats. The site was deemed by Audubon-Chicago to be a globally-significant Important Bird Area.


Join us at our weekly stewardship workdays.

Spring Creek is a tranquil respite from the hustle of everyday, modern life where we seek to restore the balance of nature in the preserves and in our lives. This can only happen with lots and lots of seed.
