Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie was established in 1996 by the U.S. Forest Service with the goal of returning the former Joliet Army Ammunition Plant to native tallgrass prairie. Midewin is a Potawatomi word for healing, appropriate because we are removing contaminants and converting the land back to prime wildlife habitat.
At Midewin, we rely on our diverse and committed volunteer staff to achieve our mission. In 2008, volunteers donated more than 8,000 hours of service. Their accomplishments include educating hundreds of youth on the importance of natural areas, planting native species and recording "bunkerglyphs" for future generations. We offer a variety of volunteer activities to suit every interest and skill level, so please contact us about ways you can learn about and enjoy your public land!
