Habitat Restoration Project At Skokie Lagoons

Join the Winnetka Park District, BackYard Nature Center and the Cook County Forest Preserve Steward for a morning of service and habitat restoration in the Skokie Lagoons! 4th graders and older will have the opportunity to use saws and loppers to remove invasive buckthorn trees and younger children can beautify the lagoons by collecting trash with their parents.

Afterwards, participants are welcome to bring s’mores, hot dogs or other food for roasting over the brush pile fire.

Tools and gloves will be provided. We will meet at the corner of Tower Road and Forestway Drive under the BackYard Nature Center Banner.

Please Note: All minors must have an adult present to sign a waiver for the Cook County Forest Preserve.
