Thompson Road Farm Restoration Workday
May 29 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
We are very happy to announce that Bruce Killips is now an official TLC Steward and will be hosting bi-weekly workdays on Mondays at Thompson Road Farm! TLC partnered with Bull Valley to purchase and protect this property as a natural area. It’s made up of mostly wet sedge meadow and woodland habitats that are in need of invasive management. The oak woods is roughly 35 acres and heavily infested with buckthorn, honeysuckle and bittersweet, but many precious natives are still holding on beneath the brush. We’ll kick off these workdays clearing brush at the northwest corner of the woodland which is located roughly midway through the property.
Directions: From the intersection of Charles Rd. and Greenwood Rd. in Woodstock, head South on Greenwood Rd. (rt. 120) for 0.0mi. Turn left onto Thompson Rd. and continue for 0.7mi. Turn right just before the green gate and continue along the gravel road (watch for potholes!) past one right bend and one left bend in the road. Continue until you see a picnic table at the 3rd bend and park off to the side.Nearest address: 9505 Thompson Rd Woodstock, IL
