Great Lakes Action Day at The Skokie Lagoons
November 7 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us as we work with the Shedd Aquarium and The Forest Preserves of Cook County to help local ecosystems by removing invasive species, including European buckthorn, Asian honeysuckle, and multiflora rose from The Skokie Lagoons! These aggressive trees and plants can soak up precious resources and outcompete native plants. To remove invasive vegetation, we’ll be using loppers and bowsaws to cut invasive plants and burn the brush on site, and we also hand pull and bag invasive vegetation and collect native seeds to spread in newly restored areas to help establish native plant populations.
