Saturday, December 7, 8:30am- 12pm
8:30am-9am- Light Refreshments
9am-12pm- Buckthorn Removal
Meet in Parking Lot D
Help out with ecological restoration at the Des Plaines campus this Saturday! Sustainability Club will host this event and provide light refreshments from 8:30-9, followed by buckthorn cutting from 9-12. Never done this before? No problem! You will learn and have fun as we work in partnership with volunteers from the Forest Preserves of Cook County to keep Oakton’s woods wild and beautiful. We’ll meet in Parking Lot D and work in the woods alongside it to the east. Work gloves, safety goggles, and tools provided.
Dress in layers, winter wear, and boots(preferred)/shoes suitable for muddy outdoor conditions. Synthetic fabric and especially “puffy” jackets should not be worn, especially as the outer layer.
Many hands make light work, and the more the merrier. Hope to see you there!
Open to all. Registration is encouraged, but not required. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult and all participants must sign a waiver. Contact email@example.com with questions.
