Plug Planting Volunteer Day at Indian Ridge Marsh

Help restore rare wetland and prairie habitats at Indian Ridge Marsh on Chicago's Southeast Side in the Calumet region! Volunteers will plant plugs (seedlings) of a variety of native species such as feverfew, purple prairie clover, and pale spiked lobelia.

Snacks, water, tools, and gloves will be provided. Please wear appropriate clothing for fieldwork (e.g., long pants, waterproof shoes or boots). Children 16 years old or younger must be accompanied by a parent or other chaperone.

Meet at 9:00 a.m. in the parking lot at the north end of Indian Ridge Marsh on East 116th Street in Chicago, just west of South Torrence Avenue.
