ORGANIZATION: FRIENDS OF ILLINOIS NATURE PRESERVES

Kishwaukee Fen - in the Village of Lakewood - is protected for its high-quality habitat and its rare plants and animals. But they need your help.

This ecological gem has been getting smaller as brush invades. Its inspiring biodiversity has been decreasing. You could help turn the tide this weekend.

Join other friends of nature in restoring health to these precious prairies and wetlands. Enjoy some fresh air, learn and discover, and be a part of something big. All are welcome!

Our restoration activities include cutting and burning brush, collecting seeds, and invasive weed control.

We'll meet this Sunday, May 1st at 9am.

Park at the end of Palmer Drive just west of Trevino in the Village of Lakewood.
