Volunteer With Natural Resources

Natural Resources volunteers assist staff to restore natural diversity to DuPage forest preserves. Some volunteers may monitor bird, amphibian, reptile, and insect populations in the preserves. Other volunteers may collect and redistribute seeds or remove invasive species to re-establish native prairies and woodlands during restoration workdays.
