What is an Oak Keeper?

As an Oak Keeper, you will learn hands-on skills and background knowledge to apply to the restoration of McHenry County’s oak ecosystems. Join TLC at any of these programs listed below throughout the year to learn more!

Whether you own an oak woods, want to volunteer to help restore oak woodlands, or just want to learn more about this important part of McHenry County’s history and ecology, you will benefit from the Oak Keeper program.

The oak trees in McHenry County need your help! Only 4 percent of McHenry County’s oak tree populations remain. If we don’t do something today, there’s a good chance we won’t have oaks in our landscape for much longer.
