[ARCHIVED] Swan Pond Restoration Project - NEW DATE!

Fox Sedge

Date:  Saturday, July 29, 2017

Time:  9am - 12pm

Location:  Swan Pond

Volunteers are needed to help with sedge planting in the Swan Pond.  If you are able to assist with this important effort, please RSVP to Maribeth Reimer by email or voicemail at: or 708-442-3590 x500.   

Due to the high Des Plaines River level, this project has been postponed to July 29, from its' originally scheduled date of July 15.  Recent precipitation and the resulting increase in the river level has made planing on July 15 inadvisable.  The river is not projected to crest until sometime this weekend.  If you planned to join in on the 15th, hopefully, the 29th will still be available.  If you couldn’t make it on the 15th, perhaps, the 29th will now work.  We look forward to seeing you.

This project will likely continue into the afternoon, so if you’re not available in the morning, please consider helping out in the afternoon.  Look for the Riverside Public Works dump truck.  Come and help out as your schedule permits.  Supervised children are welcome. Service hour credits are available.  Bring your favorite work gloves & a water bottle.  All other supplies & snacks will be provided.
