Many hands help us care for many lands!

If you're ready to get out of the office and want to dig in and help the environment, we've got the lands, all we need are the hands! Groups can range in size from 5-200 volunteers!

Corporations, clubs, service organizations and religious groups are needed to help us de-litter and maintain DuPage county's beautiful forest preserves. Work side by side with your friends de-littering, mulching, gardening, seed collecting, seed planting, brush-cutting, removing invasive plants and trimming the trails. Sometimes we have special projects or events that need your assistance! Your help is GREATLY appreciated!
