Volunteers will help with restoring fields to native grassland habitat, maintenance of the boardwalk, mowing, seeding, prescribed burns and other tasks as needed.

Dress for the weather and wear sturdy closed toe shoes. Bring work gloves, water bottle, and snacks if you like.

Contact Tyler Pellegrini, NLI’s Restoration Ecologist, to let him know you want to help or if you have questions. 815/970-5012, tpellegrini@naturalland.org.
