Langham Island Workday – Kankakee County
May 12 @ 9:45 am - 1:45 pm
Restore ecological health to the island of rare plants! Fall/winter/early spring is the time we manage invasive brush and thin out trees to bring light to the ground level.
Wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty/damaged and solid shores. Pack a lunch and bring water to drink. Arrive at island view parking lot at 9:30-9:45 to load up the boat.

Langham Island weekday workdays occur every other Thursday. Workers will shuttle to and from the island in a john boat provided by IDNR.
Things to know before you come:
- If you are not fully vaccinated, wear a mask if unable to social distance from others at the site.
- Bring water and a snack. Dress for the wilderness – this should include sturdy boots or shoes, a hat, bug spray, and sunscreen. Long pants and a long sleeve shirt are suggested.
- We work hard, but at our own pace, and we often take breaks to share snacks and share ideas and nature with each other.
If you are attending a workday at a nature preserve owned by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, please complete and bring the IDNR Volunteer Waiver to the workday when you attend.
If you have any questions, please contact Amy at 779-212-2785 or firstname.lastname@example.org
