Serve the Community during Forest Preserves’ Annual Martin Luther King, Jr.

Day of Service Event

Public invited to participate in day of stewardship, service

The Forest Preserves of Cook County is hosting a day of stewardship and service in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The event will take place on Monday, Jan. 16 from noon to 3 p.m. at the Dan Ryan Woods Pavilion, located at 8700 S Western Avenue in Chicago.

During the event, attendees will help staff remove invasive plants while learning about efforts being made to maintain healthy habitats, as well as enjoy fun, family-friendly wintertime activity stations, hot drinks and a brush pile burn. Activity stations include snow shoe hikes (weather permitting) or guided hikes, animal tracking, crafts and more.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service event is free to attend. The brush pile burn and invasive removal work is appropriate for attendees ages 10 and up. Attendees younger than 10 can participate in activities. Attendees between the ages of 10-14 must be accompanied by an adult.

Registration is not required; however, groups with more than 10 people are asked to register in advance by emailing Credell.Walls@cookcountyil.gov. For more information, call 708-386-4042 x19.

A complete listing of all special events and programs, including other camping-related events, is posted to the Forest Preserves’ events website at fpdcc.com/events with seasonal brochures that can be downloaded.
