Hours will be 9-11 a.m. New volunteers and families are welcome. Groups can register by calling CFC at (847) 382-7283. Meet at Citizens for Conservation's headquarters, 459 W. Highway. 22, in Lake Barrington. Look for the white farmhouse with a silo across from the entrance to Good Shepherd Hospital. Dress for the weather.
