Hello all you nature aficionados,
[SORRY for the last minute post, as mentioned most all posts go to our VOLUNTEER site http://chicagofunvolunteers.org. Luckily Miss Lydia will be helping us out in this area too! There is a HUGE event going on next Sat at the Montrose Dunes you all should check out too however...]
Specs for this weekend's workday is as follows, note the specific location. At this sanctuary especially it's a good idea to wear longer pants so don't get scratched up if working inside the fence where undergrowth can get pretty thick. :)
If driving LSD it's the Irving Park exit that leads to 3400 N. Lake Shore Dr & that golf lot. Lots of space to leave bikes in back at this location...
