Calling all volunteers!
2014 Earth Day Tree-Planting Event
Saturday, April 19, 10 a.m. sharp!
We'll dig the holes if you'll plant the trees! Join Forest Preserve District staff and volunteers to help plant hundreds of oaks in honor of Earth Day. Simply plant trees in pre-dug holes, water and mulch. It's easy! This event is perfect for individuals, families, scouts or other groups. Plant as many trees as you like. Be sure to arrive at 10 a.m. sharp! We'll plant trees until 1 p.m. or until we run out of trees — whichever comes first!
Fitchie Creek Forest Preserve is located at 39W933 Russell Rd., Elgin.
Groups of 10 or more, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 630-208-8662 or e-mail email@example.com to RSVP. Groups of less than 10 do not need to register in advance.
