Fall Work Day

October 21, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Fall is right around the corner, and there is always work to be done before the cold weather sets in. Lend a hand at the Arboretum at this annual volunteer event as we load green houses, clean up trails, remove invasive species, and various other jobs to prepare for the winter season.

Tools and training will be provided. Bring your own gloves, if you have them. At noon, socialize with Friends at a provided lunch. For more information, call 217-632-3685 or e-mail alana.mckean@ic.edu. Pre-registration is encouraged to help plan jobs and lunch but not required.


Visitors, volunteers, and tour groups are always welcome at Starhill Forest. To schedule a visit or volunteer on a different day, please get in touch. Your support is truly appreciated!
