New Year’s Eve Oak Rescue at Thompson Road Farm

December 31, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Get your New Year’s Eve off to a great start by helping out at an oak rescue in beautiful McHenry County, where we will work to rescue a nice group of oak trees!

What is an oak rescue? It’s an opportunity for people to work together to free an old oak tree from the brush that surrounds it. Some people cut the brush with saws while others stack the brush into piles that we burn to keep warm. It’s a few hours of work that is gratifying because the big old oak is left in a healthier state … free to breathe and reach out its branches. And its acorns are able to grow into big old oaks.

Come enjoy the winter air and the warm feeling of doing something good for the McHenry County landscape! Afterward your hard work will be rewarded with a lunch of brats and hot dogs. Feel free to bring a dish to pass if you like.
