Izaak Walton Park is a unique treasure of wetlands and forest. This public event is a collaborative effort amongst, Prospect Heights Park District, Chicago Region Trees Initiative and the Natural Resources Commission with volunteers from the local TreeKeeper chapter.
The financial support from the Morton Arboretum and their Centennial Year Celebration has made the planting of these 20 trees possible. These native trees will help reduce heat islands and create essential oak ecosystems for species to thrive. We will meet at the Pavilion in the Park on Elmhurst Road. You will see staff at table where you can sign in.
No experience is necessary! Volunteers will help us dig holes, plant trees, mulch, and water.
- Please bring a mask, long pants, closed toe shoes, a (full) water bottle and sunscreen. We will take care of everything else!
- Note that masks may need to be worn for the duration of the project. We will limit group size and maintain social distancing as needed for participants' health and safety.
