A visit to an area park on Sept. 29 can benefit both families and nature as Chicago Wilderness Corporate Council hosts a “Day of Service.” Whether collecting seeds, clearing brush or distributing mulch, there are large amounts of open space and natural areas in the region. The day of service offers an opportunity for the public to give back to nature while helping to protect and restore these natural areas.
“These parks provide us with wonderful recreational opportunities as well as clean air and water, so it is important to spend some time lavishing care and attention in these areas,” said Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) Commissioner Debra Shore. “The day of service is a fun-filled way to give back in just a few hours.”
