Nachusa Grasslands Volunteers
Summer volunteer workdays will involve native seed collection and/or invasive plant management.
Signing up in advance is required.
Due to COVID-19 safety protocols and new Morton Building construction traffic, volunteer workdays will meet at the Nachusa Grasslands Visitor Center, 2075 Lowden Road, Franklin Grove, IL 61031.
See the attached "COVID-19 Workday Safety Protocols for Nachusa Grasslands Volunteers" 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 Visitor Center 15 minutes before the start of the workday, as the group will leave promptly for the worksite. The outhouses are open.
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.
