Help the Barrington Greenway Initiative’s conservation and restoration efforts by collecting seed at BGI’s Explore and Restore September program.
The group will meet at Citizens for Conservation’s headquarters at 459 W. Highway 22, Lake Barrington, on Saturday, September 22 from 9-11 a.m.
Work alongside knowledgeable volunteer stewards and staff from CFC, Audubon Great Lakes, Friends of the Forest Preserves, Forest Preserves of Cook County, and Lake County Forest Preserves. Meet in CFC’s parking lot; wear sturdy shoes, long pants, and mosquito repellant and bring water if it is a hot day. All ages are welcome.
BGI is a long-term plan, created and led by Citizens for Conservation, to expand and link fragmented natural habitats, increase biodiversity and advance ecosystems in the greater Barrington community from approximately Popular Creek north to Roberts Road. This partnership between CFC and other conservation groups and volunteers will link more than 14,000 acres of prairies, wetlands and forest preserves for conservation success and benefits to area residents.
