Oaktober Outside

October 14, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

We’ll visit a savanna and woodland in West Dundee to participate in restoration activities followed by a small hike around this special historical property.

Oak ecosystems have existed in North America 20-25 million years.

Learn from a Kane County Forest Preserve District steward how disturbances caused profound changes in the Chicago region’s landscape and how ecologists and volunteers are working towards oak habitat recovery.

 Please dress for working outdoors and bring a water bottle
