Stewardship DaysStewardship: Elkhorn Creek Lower West Planting

Thursday, July 2, 2020
7 – 9 a.m.
Elkhorn Creek Biodiversity Preserve, Forreston, IL (SE corner of West Grove and Freeport Rds)
Leader: Mary Blackmore, 815-938-3204

2020 Stewardship Changes:
• There will be no carpooling.
• Prior to each date that you plan to volunteer, please call the listed leader to RSVP so we can comply with limits to group size and so you can get information about potential additional conditions, i.e. face coverings.
• In order to minimize shared resources, please bring along your own gloves, water and snack.
• Although previously we often sociallydistanced by the very nature of our work, we will be sure to keep 6 feet apart this year.
• Additional stewardship sessions have been scheduled in order to provide more opportunities and create smaller groups.

What Stays the Same:
• We will continue to provide tools and directions for our work.

• We will take a break at the halfway point.
• Volunteers should wear long pants, long sleeves, socks long enough to tuck your pant legs into (for tick avoidance), a hat and footwear that can get wet (earlier is dewier!).
• Bring insect repellent and sunscreen.
