Event Cancelled: Openlands Lakeshore Preserve: Seeds and Weeds Stewardship Workday

October 5, 2013 | 9:30am - 1pm

This event has been cancelled due to the threat of inclement weather. We regret the inconvenience.

The beautiful lakeshore, ravine, and bluff ecosystems at the Openlands Lakeshore Preserve have been undergoing careful restoration, and we need your help! Spend the morning collecting native plant seeds and removing invasive species at our first ever Seeds and Weeds Stewardship Workday. Bring your friends and family, make some new friends, and help us care for the natural communities of this extraordinary place.

We will meet in the main parking lot off Patten Road. Please bring enough water to last you the day, dress for the weather and working outside (with clothes you can get dirty and closed-toe shoes), and bring any insect or sun protection you feel you may need. We will provide a limited quantity of work gloves, loppers, and pruning scissors, but please bring your own if you can. Minors must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

RSVP: This event is free, but please RSVP by October 4 at or 815-701-1999.
