Westwood Park Restoration Workday

April 26 @ 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. Come join us this Tuesday as we continue clearing buckthorn and honeysuckle out of this strategically important conservation area.

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.

Nearest address: 1529 Hillside Trail, Woodstock, IL 60098

Tips to make your workday experience safe/enjoyable:

Bring plenty of water – better to bring too much than too little!

Sturdy boots or old tennis shoes will do

Leather gloves or gardening gloves

Long sleeves/pants – prevent scrapes and scratches from branches

Hat – helps protect hair from embers

Sunglasses or eye protection

Feel free to bring loppers if you’ve got them!

Hope to see you there!
