Special Volunteer Restoration Day
January 12 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
CFC and Barrington Greenway Initiative sponsor special volunteer restoration day
The Barrington Greenway Initiative and Citizens for Conservation will sponsor a special family-friendly volunteer workday on Saturday, January 12, from 9-11 a.m., at Craftsbury Preserve.
The group will cut invasive buckthorn and brush at Craftsbury, CFC’s newest preserve. Thanks to a generous grant from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation, volunteer hours will earn grant support. Be a part of the Barrington area’s collaborative conservation community and work alongside volunteer stewards and staff from CFC, Audubon Great Lakes, the Bobolink Foundation, Friends of the Forest Preserves, Forest Preserves of Cook County, and Lake County Forest Preserves. Meet in CFC’s parking lot at 459 W. Highway 22, Lake Barrington; wear sturdy shoes and dress for the weather. All ages are welcome, and snacks and special refreshments will be provided.
The Barrington Greenway Initiative is a long-term plan, created and led by Citizens for Conservation, to expand and link fragmented natural habitats, increase biodiversity and advance ecosystems in the greater Barrington community from approximately Poplar Creek north to Roberts Road. This partnership between CFC and other conservation groups and volunteers will link more than 14,000 acres of prairies, wetlands and forest preserves for conservation success and benefits to area residents.
