Celebrate Earth Day with the Forest Preserve District of Kane County!

You’re invited to join the Forest Preserve District at two events to commemorate Earth Day. Join us for one or both activities:
April 19 — 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Fitchie Creek Forest Preserve
We’ll dig the holes if you’ll plant the trees! Join Forest Preserve District staff and volunteers to help plant hundreds of oaks.  Simply plant the trees in pre-dug holes, water and mulch. It’s easy! This event is perfect for individuals, families, scouts or other groups. Plant as many trees as you like. Be sure to arrive at 10 a.m. sharp! We’ll plant trees until 1 p.m. or until we run out of trees — whichever comes first!  Fitchie Creek Forest Preserve is located at 39W933 Russell Rd., Elgin.
April 22 — 4-5:30 p.m.
LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve
Join naturalists from the Forest Preserve District of Kane County for a guided hike through LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve. We’ll explore the woods and prairie and look for wildlife and wildflowers during this special walk. There will be hands-on activities and stories along the trail. This event is free, family-friendly, and open to all ages. LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve is located at 37W700 Dean St., Saint Charles.  Meet at Creek Bend Nature Center.
Please see the attached flyer for more information. We hope to see you out in the preserves!
