Opportunity Details

Stewardship Volunteer Workday for Groups

Description

We believe that the engagement of volunteer community groups is crucial to the mission of the Forest Preserves of Cook County. As the environmental activist and visionary, Aldo Leopold, said so well: "When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect."

This opportunity is for groups who want to schedule an Ecological Stewardship workday in the Forest Preserves.
