Conservation Days for Fall 2023

Our conservation workdays are on Saturdays from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. Everyone is welcome and no prior experience is necessary. We do not have formal membership or dues. Just come as often as you like and help us do our small part to maintain the health of woodlands, prairie restorations and native prairie remnants. Visit this page from time to time to get updates. To receive email notifications of updates and cancellations send your email address to Kenton at with a request to be added to the list.

We advise sturdy footwear and gloves at workdays. Tools are provided but personal tools are welcome.
