Volunteer Opportunities

Whistler Woods contains oaks up to 300 years old, but invasive brush prevents their acorns from sprouting. Come join a volunteer crew that will cut back the invasives and improve the habitat at this preserve. Learn what it takes to restore diverse wildlife, trees, wildflowers, and health in the forest preserves and river system. The goal is to grow a community of people who will become caretakers through on-going education and training.
