OAKtober Celebration

Bring the family and join us for a celebration of oak trees and fall. Select the perfect native shrub or tree for your yard at our sale (10 am–3 pm). Join us for nature-themed activities and guided tours of the autumnal woodland (1–4 pm).

Oak woodlands define the unique natural landscape of Lake County. Unfortunately, oak woodlands in our area are in trouble. Research shows most of the oaks in our woodlands are old and there are very few young oaks growing in the understory to replace them.

Discover the important role oaks play in our woodands and what we're doing to ensure the continued survival of oaks and the animals that rely on them. Join us for expert led walks about the Woodland Habitat Restoration project, the unique Flatwood Ponds (and the animals who live there) found at Ryerson and how we are reaching into the community and partnering with homeowners to spread our conservation efforts.

A touch table, crafts and kid-friendly nature activites will introduce the whole family to oak trees and the animals that depend upon them.

FREE. No registration required.
