Help make East Branch and Hidden Lake forest preserves even better

(Oct. 8, 2019) — Volunteers of all ages are invited to help local habitats by removing litter on “Make a Difference Day” Oct. 26 East Branch Forest Preserve and “Random Acts of Kindness” Nov. 2 at Hidden Lake Forest Preserve. Both cleanups are 9 a.m. – noon.

Individuals and families as well as school, church, Scout and other groups are invited, but adults must accompany children under 18. Participants can register for Make a Difference Day and Random Acts of Kindness online or by calling 630-206-9630.
Volunteers should dress for the weather and wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants, waterproof boots and gloves as they will be cleaning along shorelines and trails.

“East Branch is a beautiful preserve to visit in the fall to see the colorful prairie grasses, enjoy a picnic outdoors or drop a line in Rush Lake,” said District Volunteer Services coordinator Deborah Brooks. “We hope that volunteers feel good knowing their efforts will help keep the environment clean and healthy for all to enjoy.”

The District has Volunteer Restoration Workdays throughout the year as well as more than 50 volunteer opportunities in 10 different volunteer programs. For more information, contact Volunteer Services at 630-933-7233 or volunteer@dupageforest.org.
