Join us in cleaning up Illinois' unique natural areas! Help reduce pollution that harms wildlife and plants and diminishes the natural beauty of our region.

Participants will meet at Dixon Springs Agricultural Center (354 State Highway 145N, Simpson, IL) at 12:30 PM, Saturday, February 22nd for hot cocoa and coffee, then carpool to the Grantsburg Swamp site along Flat Woods Road at 1:00 PM. We'll return around 4:00 PM with more cocoa and coffee for those who would like to warm-up!

We will have trash bags, gloves, and grabbers. Participants should dress appropriately for the weather, but will have the option of working on dry ground or wetter areas where rubber boots would be advised.
