Description

Dive deep into the wilds of Northwest Cook County with the Barrington Greenway Initiative's Explore and Restore series! The forest preserves contain a variety of globally rare habitats including tallgrass prairies, oak savannas and woodlands, and wetlands that form the "Barrington Greenway", a connected system of preserves that animals can travel through to feed and breed successfully. These varied habitats need humans to keep them healthy. We are calling on neighbors in the region to get involved by hiking, collecting and distributing native seeds, cutting and burning invasive species, participating in introductory bird walks, and planting prairie plugs across the region to create the largest Greenway in NE Illinois.

All ages and levels of experience are welcome. Work side-by-side with experienced volunteer stewards and staff from Citizens for Conservation, Audubon Great Lakes, Friends of the Forest Preserves, Forest Preserves of Cook County, and Lake County Forest Preserves. Visit the Barrington Greenway Initiative for more information.

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.
