Black Partridge Woods Nature Preserve- Stewardship Volunteer Days

View Schedule

Black Partridge Woods is one of the first dedicated nature preserves in Illinois. The 80 acre site features river bluffs, ravine forests, and spring-fed streams. The preserve boasts one of the earliest and diverse displays of spring wildflowers in the region. Restoration activities center on the removal of invasive species like honeysuckle and barberry with the use of loppers and hand saws. Weather permitting we will build and burn brush piles.
