Take a few steps into Pioneer Woods on one of the numerous trails and you're into the hilly terrain and woodlands typical of the Palos Preserves. Restoration activities focus on the removal of invasive plants species like honeysuckle and barberry. Collection and distribution of seeds may also be done in season. Main tools used are loppers and hand saws. Weather permitting, we may build and burn brush piles.

Requirements & Documents
Wear long sleeves, long slacks or jeans, and sturdy shoes. Natural fiber clothing (wool or cotton) works best, especially when burning brush piles. Multiple layers on cool days allow you to shed a layer as the day warms.
We provide gloves and the necessary tools, as well as snacks.
