A beautiful bonfire like this will keep us warm as we work to help the forest preserve!

About

Yes, there will be fire. We cut invasive shrubs and trees then burn them to restore the conditions for healthy nature.

Spears Woods has towering oak woodlands, sun dappled savanna, sweeping prairies and steep ravines. Join us and you'll discover areas hidden from others as we'll be working off-trail in hidden corners.

We provide all tools and direction to ensure you have an enjoyable time. We'll have snacks and extra drinking water.

NOTE: to enter the Spears Woods picnic grove parking lot you must be going southbound on Rt. 45/La Grange Road. The entrance is between 87th and 95th streets.
