Orland Grassland Bird Walk & Workday

Orland Grassland, Orland Park

A spring bird walk followed by moving across the prairie in a wave of volunteers to cut Callery Pear saplings—an invasive species that is a threat to the biodiversity within the grassland.

Bird walk begins promptly at 8am and the workday will follow, starting around 9am. Please wear long pants, boots and long sleeves you do not mind getting dirty to participate in the workday. Bring binoculars, water bottle, bug spray and a sun hat. Work gloves, tools, and snacks will be provided!
