Make a Difference Day 2017: Joliet Junior College Restoration Workday

Event Description

We are clearing weedy brush from a natural area of oaks and other native trees. This will open up the canopy to let light in to help oak trees regenerate and for native forbs/grasses to flourish. This is a project that has continued for many years, in the spring and fall of the year. There is about a decade of work to go before the first phase of the management work is finished.
