Elmhurst Park District: Great Western Prairie Work Day

May 21, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Dear Friends of Elmhurst Great Western Prairie,

Our next volunteer work day at the Elmhurst Great Western Prairie is this Saturday, May 21 from 9:00 AM until noon. We are expecting a good sized group of volunteers on Saturday, so I ask that everyone please arrive and be ready for our orientation meeting at 9:00 AM sharp with newly signed liability waivers in hand (see attached below)! As we will be working near Spring Road, this month we will meet at Spring Road and the Illinois Prairie Path rather than our usual spot at Berkley Ave. Please remember to wear work clothes (think barnyard not yoga class), long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, a hat and sturdy shoes! Do you have safety glasses, work gloves and/or loppers? Bring those along as well.

If the weather seems questionable the morning of our volunteer days, please check your email before heading out. No email by 7:30 AM means we are on for that day. If you want a phone confirmation, please give me a call before you head out at 630-336-1852. A little light drizzle never hurt anyone, but if a thunderstorm, heat well over 90 degrees, extreme cold and/or high winds are expected, we will make a judgement call on whether to cancel. Even if we cancel, either I or another dedicated volunteer will be at the site to inform people who didn’t get the word.
