Land conservancy looking for volunteers for weekend projects

The Land Conservancy of McHenry County is looking for volunteers to help restore natural areas around the county, according to a news release.


Work will include cutting, stacking and burning non-native brush to open up wetland and oak woodland areas so that native plants and animals can thrive.


The conservancy is scheduled to do work from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Windy Knoll Conservation Area on Sweet Bay Drive in McHenry.


Work also is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday at Yonder Prairie Nature Preserve, 1150 S. Rose Farm Road in Woodstock.


No experience is necessary, but volunteers are advised to dress for the weather and bring work gloves.


The Land Conservancy will provide tools and refreshments, according to the news release.


For information, contact Melissa Hormann at mhormann@conservemc.org or 815-337-9502.
