Teens can help the park district maintain natural areas this winter

December 14, 2023 03:58 PM

Lend a hand in local natural areas and parks. The park district will host pop-up stewardship days for teens to assist in invasive plant removal, planting native plants, community garden maintenance, harvesting, park clean ups and more.

The January, February, and March workdays will be at the Perkins Road Wet Prairie. The April workday will be at Meadowbrook Park Solidarity Gardens.

T-shirt and instruction will be provided. This is a great opportunity to spend time outdoors, get involved in the community, and gain new skills, experiences and professional references.

Reach out to Chelsea Prahl at or 217-384-4062 to stay up to date on pop-up stewardship workdays.
