Kane County Forest Preserve 2014 Earth Day Tree-Planting Event

Break out of your winter blues, and feel the warm spring sunshine on your face! 

Kane County FP digs the holes and you'll plant the trees! Join Forest Preserve  District staff and volunteers to help plant hundreds of oaks in honor of Earth Day. Simply plant trees in pre-dug holes, water and mulch. It's easy! Plant as many trees as you like. Be sure to arrive at 10 a.m. sharp!

Note: Be sure to park on the Russell Road side of the preserve, not the Nesler Road side. The Russell Road lot is nearest our planting area.  You’ll see my red Jeep Commander in the lot.

We'll plant trees until 1 p.m. or until we run out of trees — whichever comes first!

    Snickers: I'm glad you brought your son out! It was great to have another environmental biologist on the outing.

    I am sorry I am going to bale on this event - was up all night and there is no way I could pick up my person that wants to come with and make it there. I am sleep deprived - I am sure there will be enough people there to take my place - would have loved to have come and contributed! - Sorry!

    I am coming with my wife and a 2 year old. There should be no problem to bring a dog to that forest preserve right?

      By "will car pool," does that mean you can offer a ride to someone in Chicago? Please email me at [masked] ASAP if you can offer any help or advice. I'm Lynne, and have posted requests for a ride on here. Thanks very much!

      April 17, 2014

      Lynne I'd prefer if you could make it to Lombard and I'll take it from there.

    Don't let the waitlist stop you from coming. You can show up at the last minute.

    It would be a good idea to bring some garden gloves or work gloves. If you don’t have any, you can plant with someone who does have them. Temps are supposed to be in the 50s. No rain is predicted for Saturday. Wear shoes that you would wear for hiking.

      Hi, I'm new and need a ride from Chicago also. I'm way West, Portage Park area. I'll keep asking around, maybe together we can summon a carpool!

      April 13, 2014

  • Therese R.

    Sorry about canceling but I just realized I can't be in 2 places at the same time.

      What?! You need to get the app that allows for this.

    Hi, I'm new and am not familiar with all the Chicago area. Would it be possible to hitch a ride (& some advice as to what I need to bring?) It's been awhile since I camped/hiked in CO. I'd gladly pay for gas, etc. If not I don't want to waste a spot! Thanks! I'm on the corner of Addison and Austin, Portage Pk. Peace!!

    OK, question...I realized my drivers license expires this Monday, leaving only Saturday to renew (unless I take the chance and drive on an expired license until I could get to the DMV sometime next week) Is it ok for me to leave around 11-11:30 a..m. to get to the Elgin DMV before 12:00? I want to be respectful of anyone else that is waiting to join this group. If you have someone waiting to fill my spot I will change my rsvp to no and not have a problem with this. However, I am more than happy to be there from 10-11:30 if I am not "hogging" a spot. Thanks for listening and just let me know. Thanks so much!

    April 4, 2014

    • Monica M.

      Great, thank you and see you tomorrow!

      April 4, 2014

    • Monica M.

      Ok, I need to keep my dates straight, see everyone April 19th and the license is renewed! Everyone have a good weekend. Hopefully it will be as nice as today:)

    If I could I would like to bring a teenager who I mentor provided she would like to come - waiting for an answer. If not, I will come alone - I am a tree huger! Can never have enough trees - originally from Minnesota!

    does this event require registration with FP? i am asking because these days all the charities and volunteering for various organizations demand pre-registration and signing of waivers and such.

      They would like groups of 10 or more to register. Otherwise no. If we have 10 sign up, I'll register the group.

      March 29, 2014

    • Soso D.

      thanks for the reply.

    Sounds like a great idea, would love to do it but will be out of the state.
