Restoration workdays at LaBagh continue 2 or more times a month by invitation only. Want to be invited to one of our brilliantly fun workdays with some exceptionally cool restoration volunteers? Contact Jeff Skrentny at SkrentnySpeaks@me.com to learn how to get on our invitation list.
This uncommon woodland community encompasses wet savanna, marsh, and mature floodplain woods, and is dominated by swamp white oaks. Join the North Branch Restoration Project volunteers in restoring this special site along the Chicago River. Learn how to restore diverse wildlife, trees, wildflowers, and health to our forest preserves and river system. Our goal is to grow a community who will become caretakers through on-going education and training.
