Make your way to Indian Ridge Marsh on Chicago’s Southeast Side to plant native flowers and grasses at this post-industrial site being restored by TWI, Audubon Great Lakes, and the Chicago Park District. And because it’s International Migratory Bird Day, we’ll start the morning with a bird walk to observe some of the species that are benefiting from the work volunteers have already done in recent years.
Information for volunteers:
Meet at 9:00 in the Indian Ridge Marsh parking lot at 11600 South Torrence Avenue in Chicago.
Free transportation will be available that morning on eco-friendly biodiesel shuttles provided by the Illinois Soybean Association, departing from several South Side locations. For more information on pick-up locations and times, click here.
Volunteers should bring water and wear long pants, long sleeves, work boots, and a hat.
Gloves, tools, additional water, and snacks will be provided.
Activities are suitable for most children over 12.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend or would like more information about the pick-up locations for the shuttles.
