How to Care for Your Oak Woods
August 29, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$35 – $50
Learn how to care for your oak woods! McHenry County has lost 87 percent of its oaks since 1837, and we need you to help care for those that remain, as well as the next generation of oaks. This workshop will include investigating the history of your land with an 1872 survey map, oak habitat plant identification, hands-on skills with practice removal of invasive brush, safe herbicide use, and follow-up management. Please bring a lunch and water bottle.
Date: Sunday, Aug 29, 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Location: Trout Valley Lodge, located between 216 and 217 River Dr. Trout Valley
Fee: $35 members/$50 nonmembers, please register here by Aug. 23
