Elmhurst Park District: Great Western Prairie Work Day

June 18 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Happy Almost Summer, Elmhurst Great Western Prairie Volunteers!

Spiderwort is in full bloom and the Shooting Star flowers have faded for another year as the spring growth evolves into summer abundance on the Elmhurst Great Western Prairie. In May, we made great progress on the east end of the Elmhurst Great Western Prairie near Spring Road when we volunteers logged a total of 59 hours at the Elmhurst Great Western Prairie.

Our next volunteer work day at the Elmhurst Great Western Prairie is this Saturday, June18 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 Salt Creek, this month we will meet at Rex Ave. near Salt Creek on the south side of 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.
