Nachusa Grasslands Volunteers

Nachusa Grasslands Volunteer Workday Participants

Summer volunteer workdays will involve native seed collection and/or invasive plant management.

Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, including a limit on how many people can participate in a workday, signing up in advance is required.

See the attached "COVID-19 Safety Protocols for Nachusa Grasslands Workdays" document for a list of personal items to bring, including your own facemasks, work gloves, snacks, and water. This information will be also included in your signup confirmation and reminder.

Each participant should sign up separately.

Children ages 10 to 16 should be accompanied by an adult. Younger children may find the workday tasks tedious or difficult, and stewards cannot usually accommodate their interests and abilities.

Dress for the weather. Always wear long pants, socks, sturdy shoes, and work gloves.

Please arrive at the Headquarters Barn at 8772 S Lowden Road, Franklin Grove 15 minutes before the start of the workday, as the group will leave promptly for the worksite.

If you're not already on it, we will add you to our weekly workday email communication list, so you will learn about upcoming workday plans in advance. Please reply to your signup confirmation email if you want to opt out.
