Concannon Conservation Area Restoration Workday

May 2 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

It’s about that time again to show some love to the small but remarkable Concannon Conservation Area! For this workday we’ll be clearing brush towards the back of the site closer to the small pond. Last year we cleared brush away from the edges of the woods making room for the ephemeral patches to spread out so be sure to check out what’s growing on while you’re there!

Directions: From the intersection of 47 and 14 on the south side of Woodstock, head north on 47 for 0.4 miles. Turn left (west) onto Southview Dr and continue for 0.2 miles. Take the first left (south) onto Edgewood and park. You should be able to see our signs.

Address: 1913 Edgewood Dr, Woodstock, IL 60098 Pin:

Sawyers Welcome!
Are you an experienced sawyer looking to help out at one of our workdays? Great!
We just ask that you demonstrate, to either myself or Mr. Ducci, your ability to follow safety procedures
when felling and bucking a tree at the start of the workday. All sawyers must bring their own gear
including: saw, fuel, bar oil, chaps, hearing and eye protection.
Tips to make your workday experience safe/enjoyable:
Bring plenty of water – better to bring too much than too little!
Sturdy boots are best or old tennis shoes will do too
Leather gloves or gardening gloves, an extra pair in the winter is a good idea
Long sleeves/pants – to prevent scrapes and scratches from branches
Hat – to protect your noggin and beautiful hair from flying embers
Sunglasses or eye protection
Feel free to bring loppers if you’ve got them — be sure to label them
