About This Activity

Description

We're sorry, but this program is over. The last meeting was Sunday, September 20, 2020.

Join us for a restoration workday at Cotton Creek Marsh. As always, be prepared to work outside with long pants, sturdy boots and bug spray. The steward will notify you of any specific parking instructions or cancellations due to weather.

UPDATE: Please note that workdays are now possible, but will be limited to 10 participants (including the workday leaders). Due to COVID, it is highly recommended to bring hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes for any tools used. You will also need to bring your own work gloves.

Volunteers under age 18 may not attend the workday alone. The below minimum adult to youth ratio must be followed:

  • For ages 6-13, there must be at least 1 adult per 5 youth. A parent or guardian must be present if a child is attending without a group.
  • For ages 14 and older, there must be at least 1 adult per 10 youth.

Students fulfilling requirements and groups of five or more must register at least 1 week in advance.


All activities are outdoors and off trail. Wear closed toe shoes, socks, long pants and long sleeved shirt. Dress for the weather and outdoor work. Bring drinking water and heavy gloves (if you own them), sunscreen/insect repellent when needed.

Please contact our site steward, Mike Bouska, at mikebouska@att.net or (815) 759-0731 if you have any questions on parking or cancellations due to weather.
