Talking Wildflower Planting in the Drew Forest Preserve

Save the Date!
Wildflower Planting in the Forest Preserve
Sunday, November 10th
Stop by anytime between 10AM - 4PM

Come out to the Forest Preserve to plant native wildflowers. Native wildflowers provide a better food source for pollinators like butterflies and bubble bees and support a healthy ecosystem. These flowers have been generously donated and we need your help to plant them. Meet at the entrance to the Zuck Arboretum (behind the baseball field) and please bring a water bottle. You are welcome to come at anytime and stay for as long as you like!

More about the Drew Forest Preserve

The Drew Forest Preserve is a significant island of natural woodland in a sea of suburban development. At least 120 different bird species have been observed, with heavy visitation by spring and fall migrants. The Drew Preserve has long been an important educational resource for college students, inner-city high school students, other children, and visiting community groups. It is also used heavily for research on forest ecology, pond ecosystems, and wildlife by faculty, students, and other scientists. Thus restoring biodiversity to this forest will have far-reaching educational and scientific benefits, alongside the benefits of more trees, richer diversity, and improved bird habitat.
