Friends of IL Nature Preserves and Clifftop invite you to join us! Take a nap in the afternoon to stay up late and join us for this unique event. Washington University professors will be on hand to cover all aspects of the event, photograph the event for display on a computer screen and answer your questions. Take a moon lit walk on the ADA trail and roast a marshmallow. All are welcome, no reservations required.

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.
