“April 22, 2007 is the 37th Anniversary of Earth Day and I am pleased to help organize the Miami Woods workday in recognition of this important annual event,” commented Commissioner Suffredin.
“The exciting story behind the turnaround of the Cook County Forest Preserve District is the dedication of so many volunteers – those who work in all kinds of weather to do what most of us dread doing in our own backyard,” commended Commissioner Goslin.
This workday caps off a weekend of Earth Day events, including workdays at other sites and an Earth Day celebration featuring refreshments, nature walks and exhibits that will be held at Bunker Hill Forest Preserve, on Caldwell Avenue, between Devon and Touhy, from 1pm – 3pm on Saturday, April 21.
