Westwood Conservation Area Restoration Workday
February 26, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Westwood is a Woodstock owned Illinois Nature Preserve buffer and serves as a ‘protective’ zone that helps slow the spread of invasive species into Yonder Prairie. We’ve got buckthorn and other wily exotics taking refuge amongst some downed trees that are hindering restoration progress and could use a hand cutting and burning them.
Directions: From Woodstock, take South Street southwest out of town and over 14. After you cross 14, take the first right (north) into the Westwood subdivision. Take all left turns until you hit a dead end. That is, turn left onto Moraine Drive, turn left onto Westwood Trail, continue left onto Westwood Trail, and turn left on Hillside Trail. At the end of Hillside Trail is a grassy two track that will lead to a small parking space and the entry kiosk for the park.
