Do you want to work outside near one of the coolest trees in McHenry County? The Wolf Oak tree is a bur oak that is 30 feet tall and its trunk is five feet wide. Its branches have spread so far, the tree is nearly as wide as it is tall! Many of its massive limbs touch the ground.
Wolf Oak Woods is not only home to beautiful trees but also to wetland, savanna, sedge meadow and a bluff.
In this varied natural landscape, volunteers are needed to remove invasive species that prohibit the growth of native trees and plants. All year long we cut brush such as buckthorn, honeysuckle, and small willows with chainsaws and hand loppers. Volunteers can cut or help build and burn brush piles.
No experience is necessary, so if you love being outside, come join our team of friendly volunteers! Tools and light refreshments are provided. Please dress in long pants, sturdy shoes and old clothing for working near a burn pile, and bring some work gloves if you have them.
Workdays at Wolf Oak Woods occur each Wednesday, except for the last Wednesday of the month.
