Please call before attending any community events. It is likely that they will be postponed or canceled as a result of the coronavirus. You can find CDC coronavirus information at cdc.gov/coronavirus; AARP has additional resources at aarp.org/coronavirus.

Join us at this preserve, originally donated to NLI by our founders George and Barbara Fell, to assist with a variety of restoration work including the removal and treatment of bush honeysuckle and common buckthorn, and burning of brush piles. Explore the beauty of this private natural area while you provide community service. You never know, you might see a rare bird, mammal or plant.

Individuals or groups who wish to participate in one of the volunteer Stewardship Days should contact: Site Steward, Dion Faith, (815)520-6916,  Docfaith68@yahoo.com

You are welcome to help during the entire time listed for that stewardship day or for part of the day. Please let Dion know what time to expect you.

What to bring: Dion provides tools, gloves, and water (and sometimes special snacks!). If you plan to stay through lunch, you may want to bring a sack lunch. Dress for the weather. Long sleeves, pants, and sturdy boots are recommended.
