Old Plank Road Prairie Workday – Cook County

April 24 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

The spirit and energy of the community gather at the ancient prairie. Brush season will end in April, so come chop and lop while you can.

Spring is here—and then it will be gone, and then it will be here again, etcetera etcetera until Memorial Day—and as the seasons change our priorities will shift.

Meet at the intersection of Miller Circle Drive and Central Ave at 10 AM.

Remember to bring work gloves, water, and a snack for our midday break.

RSVP to oprprairies@friendsilnature.org!

Meet at Miller Circle Drive
