BUCKTHORN CUTTING & S'MORES
CUT & BURN BUCKTHORN
AND ROAST S'MORES
AT SKOKIE LAGOONS
Saturday, January 29, 2022
10am-12pm at Skokie Lagoons
760 N Forestway Drive
FREE! | Open to 5th-8th Graders
Presented with Backyard Nature Center
Join us as we take on and take down the buckthorn with Backyard Nature Center! If you like using brush cutters, building campfires and eating s'mores surrounded by the beauty of our Skokie Lagoons then this Saturday morning activity is for you.
Buckthorn is detrimental to the health and future of our woodlands, prairies, wetlands and parks because it takes over large areas destroying wildlife habitat and food sources. It out- competes other important native plants that we need for a stable, healthy ecosystem.
The location will be marked with our flags. We will be west of Forestway Drive, about .75 miles north of Tower Rd. Parking available off Forestway. Contact Michelle with questions!
