This is the perfect opportunity for your scout troop to join us and learn about nature as well as participate in actual preserve restoration. By working closely with staff and trained volunteers, your scouts will learn how to safely use bow saws and loppers to effectively rid our forest preserves of European Buckthorn. Other seasonal restoration activities may be included.

Multiple scout groups may be working together during the session.  All tools and safety equiptment will be provided.

Please have your scout wear long pants and sturdy shoes.
