Description

Cap Sauers is the largest nature preserve in northeastern Illinois. Its 1,520 acres feature rolling hills, running streams, and the Visitation esker, a rare type of glacial formation. Restoration activities include the removal of invasive species like honeysuckle and buckthorn, and the collection and distribution of seeds of desirable native plants. Main tools used are loppers and hand saws. Weather permitting, we may build and burn brush piles.
