Steward Group Cares for Our Remnant Prairie

The West Chicago Prairie Stewardship Group is a support group of the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County. Its members work with our Natural Resources department to monitor and manage some of the most diverse remnant prairie habitats in Illinois, as well as marshes and savannas at West Chicago Prairie Forest Preserve. A series of “Volunteer Restoration Workdays” are scheduled throughout the year at the preserve, and volunteer steward Steve Sentoff leads a group of die-hard and one-day volunteers to cut invasive and nonnative brush and weedy vegetation, herbicide and sow seed.

Its volunteer members regularly steward the land, contributing hundreds of hours of service to care for natural resources each year. Their efforts to conserve the prairie and restore its plant diversity have garnered the group national honors.

 

West Chicago Prairie is a 358-acre natural area that contains over 500 species of native plants and animals.
