Centennial Volunteers Restoring Kickapoo Woods




The Centennial Volunteers is an inspiring movement of volunteers restoring nine special sites along the Chicago and Calumet rivers. Volunteers are needed from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., March 25, at Kickapoo Woods, in Riverdale, to restore wet prairie and savanna. Volunteers remove invasive vegetation, restore stream banks, plant native plants and improve stormwater management to reduce urban runoff from entering the Little Calumet River.

         Centennial Volunteers is a partnership between Friends of the Forest Preserves, the Forest Preserves of Cook County, Friends of the Chicago River, the Field Museum and the Chicago Ornithological Society.

For more information, call Ilana Federman at 312-356-9990 or email Ilana@fotfp.org. For a full listing of dates and locations, visit fotfp.org/event/centennial.
