The Land Conservancy sets volunteer work days
WOODSTOCK – The Land Conservancy volunteer work days continue this week at several locations. Volunteers should dress for the weather and wear work gloves. Hand tools and refreshments are provided.
• 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at Windy Knoll Conservation Area, McHenry. Volunteers will clear brush and invasive trees from this TLC wetland. The winter restoration work means that wildflowers should explode this summer. To get there from Crystal Lake, take Walkup Road north and continue onto Crystal Lake Road. Take the first left onto Anvil Road into the Windy Knoll subdivision. Continue left where Anvil turns into Coachlight, then take a right onto Swinford. Swinford will end at SweetBay Drive, and the site will be just to the left.
• 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, at Waichunas Wetland Conservation Area, Island Lake. This woodland was cleared of nonnative brush a couple of years ago, but it’s time to go back and remove the resprouting brush and growth. The area was planted with hazelnut and ninebark shrubs, and there are many young oaks growing.
