‘Planting for Tomorrow’ aim is reforestation of Coral Woods area

MARENGO – Now is the time to make a difference by participating in the “Planting for Tomorrow” reforestation program at McHenry County Conservation District’s Coral Woods Conservation Area near Marengo.

Individuals, families, schools, church and Scout groups can help reforest Coral Woods in Marengo by participating in McHenry County Conservation District’s Planting for Tomorrow reforestation program.

Sponsor a 3-foot-tall oak or hickory seedling for $30 each, three for $75 or five for $100 to be planted this fall.

Donations for the fall 2013 planting will be accepted until April 30.

To make a donation, call 815-338-6223 or visit www.mccdistrict.org/web/ge-planting-for-tomorrow.htm to download a form or connect to our online order system.

All spring donors are invited to participate in the tree planting scheduled for Sept. 27 at Coral Woods Conservation Area.

The district is trying to fill a 10-acre section within the 775-acre site with seedlings donated by participants. Coral Woods Conservation Area is one of the largest remaining wooded areas in McHenry County, hosting red, white and bur oaks, as well as sugar maple trees. Yet, it was once a vast 3,000-acre woodland.

The Planting for Tomorrow program is designed to help Coral Woods continue its natural process of regeneration.

For information, call 815-338-6223 or www.mccdistrict.org.
